North Berwick and Dunbar – an almost wordless post

This post will have to remain almost wordless as it’s really just an excuse to show some pictures of North Berwick and Dunbar. Ours was such a whirlwind trip that there was sadly no time to linger with my paintbox in any of the beautiful locations we visited, but they were certainly inspiring.

Since our return from Scotland I have been painting on the hill once more in the cold March evening light but I will save that for my next post. Now that the clocks have jumped forward an hour there should be increasing opportunities to roam around on the fells capturing the brightness and shadows in paint.
