Printing with the wee boy

Sunday fun and messing about with paint, with James who is now 3 years old.   Here is a scraper sketch of him I did along with our hand prints, his over the top of mine.   Great messy fun,  both the twins love to find new ways to make a mark with the paint. […]

Evening all, here is a quick sketch from tonight’s dinner time. The twins had spaghetti and this pen drawing was scribbled whilst dodging tomato covered hands and flying clumps of pasta!

You take it for granted but for my two 16 month old twins it’s still a big achievement to be standing up, and one that James in particular quite rightly gives himself a clap for every time. He is playing with some bricks at a chair in Hemma, a new Swedish bar and restaurant come […]

It will look lovely in the bright yellow frame I picked up today in Habitat at the West end.

My latest portrait

Posted on Aug 5, 2011

Today I worked on this, a pen portrait of my wee twins, Zoe and James. I’m almost finished and pretty pleased. It is always hard to put the pen down and admit you have finished though, often resulting in going too far and over working a drawing. I thought I would share this quick photo […]
