Shetland holiday

I've just spent two weeks in Shetland and Orkney, staying in camping barns, drawing, walking and generally slobbing around. The sketch below is the first place I stayed in- the Windhouse Lodge, the gatehouse to a haunted ruin.

These sketches are just me hanging around the harbour. I like drawing boats.
Staying in youth hostels was good for drawing, because I'd come in in the evening and get settled and usually someone else would turn up. So I'd go outside to give them room to get their stuff sorted, then I'd come back in and have a chat later. I met some really nice people.
