Muddy festival

Thanks to @EdinSpotlight and #foodiesfestival  for the inspiration for this sketch of one of the tractors at this years Foodies Festival trying to make its way through a field full of mud.

When asked if I had ever sketched mud before I realised I hadn’t, and with the recent weather in Edinburgh there is a lot of it about. Plus I like the image of the tractor in this photo, I thought it would be an interesting challenge.

I drew the line drawing with a fine line pen, adding the colour wash on the Pc after I had scanned the original.

See the original photo from Edinburgh Spotlight here: And if you are heading to Foodies Festival in Holyrood park today be sure to wear your wellies.

  1. Hello Moyra, thanks for the comment. I went to Foodies Festival regardless, and I did get stuck, and I did get muddy in that very field. You can’t say we weren’t warned though!

  2. Its a wonderful sketch, I can almost feel my wellies getting stuck.You truly have a gift. I think you will have many more muddy areas this week to perfect your talent.
    Mind you Im sure like the rest of us a wonderful sunny day would bring forth a beautiful picture.Keep up the great work.
