Storm – Black ink in a Watercolour Moleskine
Scotland was hit by a ferocious storm yesterday which brought gusts up to 90mph and horizontal rain. Fortunately it was quite mild although it felt cold and, so, was a day to be spent indoors. This is the scene, from the top end of the street where I stay. It was impossible to see the Pentland Hills at times as things came in and out of focus. I decided to try using just one colour for this and black, always a “no!-no!” seemed to match the mood of the day. The winds increased by late afternoon – it was quite dark by 2,30pm. It reminded me of a biblical movie, say in the style of Cecil B DeMille. At time I half expected a plague of frogs or insects to descend upon us.
