Sketchbook notes from the drifting spaces

Between Lochaber and the Cairngorms

My large rucksack was full of gear ready for sculptural work and photography in the hills. The work was made at about 3000ft above Loch Ossian, on a memorable walk. It was a great feeling to walk and make artwork in such a raw, remote location at least ten miles from a public road. I’ve got a fair bit of footage and images to edit and work with. Here are some phone snaps:
