Twelve apostles, Catacol

catacol sketch 2014


Final post from my Arran sketchbook. Took a trip to the north of the island to visit the old house. These are the twelve apostles in Catacol ( only six in the sketch, midges in abundance) . I used to live in the second one from the left. The sea is on the doorstep and virtually no traffic passes by. Fine days, but eventually had to get back to real life! (my perspective, of course). The cottages form a terrace and are all identical apart from the front upstairs window. No two windows are the same, apparently for fishermen to identify their home when out at sea.

  1. Don’t know why but am more and more interested in fine line sketching as a basis to complete with water colour.

  2. Whew! Those different windows don’t half tug at the imagination.
