We’re exploring Lewis, Harris and Skye over the next week sketching, painting, writing and filming as part of our collaborative  project this year. Tomorrow we’ll explore the standing stones of Callanish. 

We also met Lewis poet Ian Stephen on the ferry, I haven’t seen him for about ten years – we’re droppibg in to say hello in the morning so more about Ian tomorrow.

Lastly a quick sketch of Louise snoozing on the ferry!
