A familiar site from my walk into Edinburgh

The famous Black Bull pub on Leith Street, opposite the current building site that was St James’ Hotel and shopping centre. I’ve lived in both the East and West of Edinburgh and when I stayed in Pilrig Street just off Leith Walk this was a daily sight as I made my way from Leith Walk […]

A favourite sketch for Friday.

I love this sketch so much. My wee princess four and a half years ago.  I remember drawing her sleeping in the car seat one afternoon after a drive. So peaceful. Sometimes the simple sketches are the best, but it can be hard knowing when to stop a drawing. Probably in this instance it was […]

A new view and a fresh perspective

This afternoon I went for a walk up Corstophine Hill, looking for a new view of Edinburgh which had been recommended to me some time ago. It is always good to get a fresh perspective on life, I often walk up Arthurs Seat in Edinburgh to get some fresh air, fill the lungs and stretch […]

Sketching from the cycle path

This morning I enjoyed a lovely cycle along the Water of Leith with Mrs Sketcher.  We sat in the sunshine and drew across the water as swans and ducks paddled by. What a lovely day in the capital 🙂 Enjoy the sunshine while is lasts.

Second day blues

My second day wasn’t so successful at Edinburgh Printmakers, but making mistakes teaches you more.  2/? Day two in my latest stone Lithography project, and after yesterday’s grinding of the stone and sketching of the two images, today I etched for printing.  Having noted the sky’s in both of my drawings were too dark I […]

Back at the Edinburgh Printmakers getting creative.

Back at Edinburgh Printmakers today for the first time since my Stone Lithography evening class a month ago.  I was slightly apprehensive before hand thinking I would of forgotten everything but the team there are so helpful and understanding, and the more you do something the more it sinks in.  This stone I ground down […]
