A couple of drawings from last week, its getting a little bit brighter in the mornings enough to see the morning sun on the train into Glasgow.
The other is a drawing from Tinderbox, in Princes Square. I was drawing the people eating at Fifi & Ally when a group just sat in front of me giving me a great character to draw.
Greenock Cut, a walk that takes you around the moorland behind and above Greenock and Gourock. It gets pretty busy over the festive season while people take the chance for a good long walk to clear the cobwebs away.
This year the weather has been really mild making it okay to draw outside still.
A selection of small watercolour studies I’ve recently sent out with my book, finishing of 2013.
A couple of sketches from last week. First I had to go to the MacLellan galleries to pick up my paintings from the RGI show . I was a bit early so spent a bit of time to draw the new art school building. Its almost finished now and they’re busy putting on the final touches like the glass outside panels.
On the other side a quick view of All that is Coffee while I was there dropping of some of my books for their small shop.
These huge 30 metre high sculpture of the Kelpies near Falkirk have just been finished recently. Kelpies are Celtic water horses, that are able to shape shift into different forms.
When I went to see them last weekend, it was a beautiful clear autumn day when the light suddenly gets golden just before sunset because these sculptures are metallic they beautifully reflected the colour of the light really well.
I’ve been really enjoying doing these small studies that I’ve been including with my books. As the season have been changed there been less leaves to draw so I’ve moved onto berries that I still see on the bushes and shells found on the beach.
