Going painting...

... my bags are packed for a week of outdoor painting up North. I've prepared about 10 panels for the pastels. Some of them have splashings of acrylic paint on top, I hope to use them for some detailed close-ups.
The weather has been pretty bad recently, so rather than lemon yellow, the last batch got Payne's Grey for colours. I reckon that should work pretty well for low clouds and rain in the Scottish Highlands.

I've also packed all my other things: oils, acrylics and drawing materials - a holiday is a holiday is a holiday - and it would be a shame if I really wanted to use the oils and not have them with me, wouldn't it?!
