Heres my finished ' re-imagined ' Odin picture, for my friends at Asgard Crafts, who make really cool Viking/ Celtic/ Pictish pewter/ silver/ bone stuff.

loch Sgamhain road

ON the road from lochcarron to..anywhere are some amazing empty sweeps of road, there are of course still 20 miles of blind bend single track pot holed road as well. This is the straight stretch near Loch Sgamhain ( pronounced 'skavain' ). the story behind that name is another story.
This is a small painting acrylic, pencil & pastel.

Fire & Water

One of the gallery's Christmas/Winter Exhibition includes art in CD cases, that is 12cm by 12cm. I figured trying to do whole landscapes or figures this small would be messy, so went instead for this flame & splash of water. Enjoyable, getting the richness of colour for the flame was tricky, I need to invest in some expensive paint for some core colours. I'm really in the mood for running water scenes, with my proper new camera I should be able to have some fun with this- if I ever get time to read the manual & get outside photographing on decent days.
