Sketches from a farmhouse

Posted on Jun 23, 2012

Good morning one and all from West Lothian, the sketcher family are currently house-sitting a farmhouse close to Linlithgow. We are looking after a couple of horses and three cats for a week and loving the peace and quiet of a break in the country, just half an hour from Edinburgh.

These watercolour sketches are from a walk around the grounds yesterday, the sheep are from the farm next door and the horses, Ben and Flora we are looking after.

I was trying to get a little practice drawing animals as I’m off the Royal Highland Show this weekend.

Unfortunately I was caught in a rain shower whilst drawing the horses above and the page got quite wet, it makes for an interesting effect though. I re-inked the black lines once the page was dry.

Let’s hope we get some sunny spells at the Highland Show, although all sketches both soggy or dry will be posted here 🙂
