In late October I stayed in Fife for a family get together. It was a great time, and I also got the chance to do a few paintings.  These experiment more with iridescent oil pastels and wax. I really like the possibilities these both give when used with watercolour - the wax rejects the paint which makes interesting shapes, and the oil pastel has a rough texture which is really helpful for describing certain things.

I really enjoyed painting the fishing villages on the East Neuk of Fife - Crail and Pittenweem. There's just something appealing about drawing boats!
