New Year trip North and a new sketching tool.

Melin Udrigle - Rosshire.

First of all I'd just like to wish you all a happy new year. Dave and I headed to the far north west for the new year celebrations. Although the weather was far from perfect we still managed to venture out into the elements and sample the bracing southerly winds. Above, I've introduced a sketch using my new christmas pressy, a mini ipad. It takes a bit of time to get used to the techniques and work out what I actually want to achieve with it, but I didn't think it was too bad for a first attempt. I can't see me venturing out without my sketchbook, but the idea of the ipad as an extra tool is definitely growing on me. 

Here are a couple of Glencoe shots which Dave took on his phone.
