Hang on Studio Wall

A 23x36 cm watercolour, set on the lonely beaches near Findhorn in Morayshire. I used to run along the beach from Findhorn to Lossiemouth as often see one of the aircraft technicians flying a huge kit . He made them himself he was trying to see how big a kite he could fly from the beach without it tugging him over .
