 Gliders at Portmoak, Scotlandwell. – Watercolour in a Watercolour Moleskine

Inspired by a video of these graceful aircraft, Uncle Bob shares a scan from his Moleskine and memories of his visits to an airfield.

I have always been fascinated by aircraft and joined the RAF Cadet Force when at High School. This led to a number of flights in various aircraft and, had I stayed in the cadets long enough would have undergone pilot training. About this time, in the early 1960’s, I would cycle from Kirkcaldy to this small airfield on the shores of Loch Leven to watch the gliders. LINK

  1. Absolutely gorgeous watercolor artwork, Uncle Bob! I aspire to achieve this level someday. In the meantime, I will keep sketching, painting, journaling and project planning in my various Moleskines daily. Thank you for the inspiration!

  2. Would you be able to do that in a sketchbook moleskine or would it have to be watercolor?
