I finished a new large . It's probably the most detailed drawing I ever made.

The main figure in the drawing is based on a picture I took at the Gion Matsuri in some years ago. It is a dancer performing the old Japanese court dance "Ran-Ryo-O".

I used Derwent Inktense and Conté Aquaralle pencils as well as watercolour paint (various brands). The paper is Arches 56cmx76cm 300g/m2 rough watercolour paper.

From the never-ending series "Innumerable Views of Loch Morlich from the Meall a'Buchaille"

The top of the Meall a'Buchaille. It was so windy that just keeping upright was a serious effort. Still, good views -- and the closest thing so far to a selfie ^_^

Once again, the path-makers exerted themselves for our benefit.

The Meall a'Bhuchaille has a nice conic shape (when viewed from the right angle), so you can easily recognize its shadow cast over the forest by the afternoon sun.

The camera in my old mobile doesn't do subtle, but sometimes it's effective.

On a plus note. I've just got an email from The Print Swap to say I've been accepted for their latest event \o/

theprintswap.com/

So I get my Bridge image exhibited in NY and then that print gets sent to another participant, and I get a print from a random participant too.

Very cool idea, very pleased to be a part of it. :)

Fediverse j'ai besoin de toi 😋

Je suis française, et j'ai une promesse de CDI en Belgique pour dans ~3 mois et demi. Je compte bien m'y installer (en plus c'est à Louvain La Neuve, donc pas vraiment sur la frontière).

J'aurais 2 semaines entre la fin de mon préavis à mon boulot actuel en France et mon nouveau boulot en Belgique.

Est-ce que vous avez des tips à me donner concernant l'administration ?

This is a small loch in the Cairngorms called Lochan Uaine, "Uaine" means green in Scottish Gaelic.
I forgot my camera that day, so these are taken with my old mobile phone.

Look, Ma.
I've spotted a cloud
(or maybe a UFO).

Another remarkable day for yesterday's #DogWalk , almost completely blue sky. November is usually the month of gale force winds and lashing rain.

Sunny weather forecast for today.

Today's trail pictures.
Hard to believe it was snow not long ago. Such a glorious day for November. Some people to the south will have got lucky if they got to the tops, having a cloud layer below them 😀
I could see it, but it was all clear skies for the hills around me.
