Two small sunrise studies recently finished.
This is the latest in a series of outdoor paintings of the sunrise viewed from Tayport as the sun’s position during sunrise still keeps moving northwards. As I write this in early June, though – it should stop its northern movement soon and start drifting southwards again. Then I can go back to observing it from Broughty Ferry!

This is a study of dawn at the River Ythan, near Ellon in Aberdeenshire. The last few miles of this river before it meets the North Sea are really idyllic. It was utterly still on this morning. Even the cows were quiet.
