July and Painting in the Rain…
Artist & Author Paul Taggart produces on-the-spot watercolour montage of views around Dornoch, Highlands of Scotland in aid of Macmillan Cancer Support

Although the morning was kind to us, lashing rain proved challenging in the afternoon. However, we all soldiered on; the ladies of the Dornoch branch committee proving their commitment to fund-raising, as they continued to accompany me, selling raffle tickets, while I painted on.

Finally we arrived at the Dornoch Castle Hotel, where we were joined by many folk for a delicious afternoon tea of freshly-made strawberry jam and scones.

4.30 was my deadline for finishing the painting and popping it into a frame for the raffle draw at 5pm. The winner, to everyone’s delight was Simon Thomson of the Castle Hotel.

This event was organised as part of my fund-raising project in support of Macmillan Cancer Support, Dornoch branch, for the current Highlands Appeal.

For more information to the background of this event and further details on the two fund-raising limited edition prints – “Lone Piper” and “Christmas Bells” please scroll down to the relevant sections in this Newsletter.
