Painting project

Part 1 Colin Joyce introduces this month’s painting project, from his motorhome on the North Coast 500 route in Scotland

What could be better than driving to wherever you want, chasing the sun perhaps, and parking up to sketch or paint the scene in front of you? Having a motorhome means you can do just that, not only to park, but also to stay there. Imagine waking up to a sunrise and being ready to paint in moments.

Scotland is the land of adventure when it comes to driving, where winding roads bring new scenes into view at every turn. There are many journeys you can take, but perhaps none better than the North Coast 500, said by some to be the UK’s answer to the USA’s famous Route 66. It is extremely popular for good reason.
