Drawing & Painting Orkney
Visitors and locals often remark on the quality of light in the North Isles. The wonderful vistas and seascapes have inspired artists throughout the ages. Why not book a day or two sketching and painting the wildlife and landscapes of Orkney with me. You will receive friendly and encouraging personal tuition for artists of any (or no) experience.
