Tuesday 5th October

'A mainly dry and bright start although rather cloudy, especially across Shetland. Good sunny spells will develop into afternoon across Shetland. Strong southerly winds persisting. Maximum temperature 14 °C'.

A day preparing a Powerpoint for tomorrow, and working in the studio (although strongly tempted by the sound of the wind to go and watch the sea).

The white paper in progress of becoming far less white.
and below sea-washed canvases to be used later...

A seal and sea otter outside window, along with the usual diving birds (what are they called?), and the occasional fly-by gannet and noisy gulls.
