A wee bit of Scottish Highlands…

I have been gone for the past couple of weeks on vacation to the beautiful country of Scotland. My husband and I had been wanting to go for a while but after seeing the Outlander series we were determined!

I could go on and on about the beauty of the country. Yes, it is wet and cool but the landscape varies from highland mountains that seem to weep (near Glencoe) up to rolling meadows and cliffs that hit the north sea near John O’Groats.

The constant in this nation is the dotting of these black faced sheep…everywhere! Yes, there are also white faced ones as well, but the black faced ones are adorable. The sheep dot the green landascape and from a distance can seem like little puffy white clouds. On some of our treks, we would walk right in the middle of the herd and they just look straight at you and then go “behhhhh” and walk away. πŸ™‚

To remember these images I decided to draw some images (I will make them in digi stamps), played around with a layout and drew away. I have a feeling I’ll be making a series of these.

They were colored with copic markers and then matted. Enjoy! Now, I need to work on the heilin’ coos and have a dram of whisky. Cheers!
