Painting in Scotland October 2017, rest and be thankful last Thursday ... Norman MacCaig hit the nail on the head ... β€œWho possesses this landscape? The man who bought it or I who am possessed by it”

sketch book seeing landscapes even in faces .... " this is my country,
The land that begat me.
These windy spaces
Are surely my own.
And those who here toil
In the sweat of their faces
Are flesh of my flesh,
And bone of my bone"... #sketchbook #riverlagan #watercolorpainting #pencildrawing #portraits #laganoarsman #visitbelfast #irishart #siralexandergray #scotland
