On the slopes of Ben Challuim, near Crianlarich at the North of the Loch Lomond and Trossachs National Park, we walked and looked at the textures and colours of the vista and the hill paths, rocks and flora beneath our feet. The colours were amazing and we did some drawing though the wind was pretty strong at times.

The snow patches in the corries made for some interesting dynamic drawing compositions looking into the distance.. and the colourful greens, silvers and oranges of the lichen and moss on the boulders was fascinating to peer closely at and draw the outlines of their shapes along with some of the varied textures.
