FULL LENGTH DVD AVAILABLE FROM:

Margaret is renowned for her pastel painting and in this film she explores the difference in light between France and Scotland. Working in south west France, she paints boats along the Canal du Midi and a windmill and buildings in the surrounding countryside. Returning to her native Scotland, she takes her pastels to Glencoe and paints in the wonderful mountainous scenery on a sunny but breezy day. Finally, in her studio, she works on one of the Glencoe paintings and paints a complete painting from the watercolour sketch made on the Canal du Midi.
