Shetland 2019 – pen and wash

Here are some pictures I drew in pen and wash.

I spent a lot of time drawing rocks.

Rocks off Burrastow

The rocks are overwhelming in their detail. Not every thing I saw is in the picture. But every thing in the picture, I saw.

Here are some pictures I drew on the journey going back South:

And another one, really quick sketches:

And here’s a sketch I did looking out of the window from my cabin on the boat.

I sent a copy of this to PS, a magical person I met on Shetland. I was thrilled when she replied with a letter and a chart identifying the buildings:

Letter from PS.

On my next visit I shall walk over there and take a look.
