The Art and the Stones
August 20, 2019
Art at the Ness of Brodgar is a varied experience. This year, I found alternate ways to work in a smaller space and within erratic days of being able to get out to the Ness. As in the past, I was happy to assist with the Open Day this past Sunday by selling raffle tickets and so have continued to be immersed in the Ness moments. But when I did manage the day and time, the weather was not always reliable. So I decided to develop a body of work in oil pastels.
I had won a 100 GBP voucher on Amazon and had decided to invest in really good oil pastels and also a drawing pad meant for them. This meant more portable and small. Well, today, I took the finished pieces back around to the places I drew and here is some of what they looked like:
Taking this photos was a bit challenging today in the wind. More will follow.
Meanwhile, last summer plain old watercolours were the start of my inspiration for the large oil painting I made summer 2018, on site.
