Thought I'd draw as I wound my way down through the mainland yesterday - these charcoal sketches are my output until Crianlarich. Normally I drive this way in the dark, or in the early hours of the day, trying to get through as swiftly as possible as I usually do the full twelve hours in one day. This time I thought I'd split the journey in half so I could get a chance to see and draw as I worked my way down the road. These drawings were the views that everyone sees when driving this road (A82). No walking or climbing took place, these were done from the very beaten track (I did pull over, no blocking of traffic was involved in the making of these sketches!).
Despite my intentions, low cloud and rain persisted throughout, but after Crianlarich, the fog really closed in and any views I was hoping for across Loch Lomond truly did not want to be seen yesterday. Still, Glen Shiel and the Rannoch Moor (east of Glencoe) were utterly beautiful and it was lovely to try drawing them. Might try and draw them on my way up-country another time. One day I'll draw the route with more time and precision, but I'm happy I got to stop a little this time.
Back in Wiltshire now and off to life drawing tomorrow. Have lovely weekends everyone :)
