The Scarp Watercolors of the 1970's.

In 1970 Norman bought a corrugated iron crofters house on the island of Scarp. Every summer in the 1970's Norman and his family would go and live there. There was no electricity, telephone or mains drainage. Days were spent collecting driftwood to burn, catching fish (and lobsters) to eat, and painting.
