Sketching the shops

A well needed pit stop to sketch this grocers on the Southside of Edinburgh.

Sometimes you just need to take a few moments for yourself, to forget your worries and concentrate on a little drawing.

I am very fortunate that although drawing has now become my job, that I can still find such joy and relaxation through my art.

After driving around town all morning, getting stuck in traffic and delayed by road works, I parked up the car and took 20 minutes to myself to destress.

This is Global Fruits, a busy little grocers in Bruntsfield, sketched from my car with ink and watercolours.

And remember to take time out for yourself, this half hour made uch a difference to the rest of my day. And do book yourself into one of my workshops to join me relaxing around the city!
