A fountain pen sketch this week, the soluble ink causes the colour to run into the lines making a darker almost rained on effect.

Happy New Year to all the revellers

As visitors flood into the city for the world famous Hogmanay celebrations tonight, I will be taking it easy this year.

Here is a sketch from the Mound, looking down through the trees and railings over to Princes Street. The hoardings are up to advertise the upcoming New Year Celebrations of Edinburgh’s Hogmanay.

This year the Sketcher Twins are 8 years old and for the first time we will be bringing in the New Year all together and awake! We are having a house party with a few friends who all have children of similar ages so it should be fun.

What ever you are doing tonight have a fabulous time and I wish you all the very best for the year ahead. And many thanks for your support through 2019 😉

A familiar view in ink and water

Today I sketched with a fountain pen and a water brush, but wonder if I went a little too far.

‪This is the view from Bruntsfield Place, looking towards the King’s Theatre and Edinburgh Castle. I was inspired by a Ronald Searle book a client gave me which featured the artists street drawings from Paris.

They looked to be drawn with a fountain pen or ink and a brush so I thought I would give it a go.

Not sure if I like it better without the water, but enjoyed the process of mixing on the paper. I think I just need to stop a wee bit earlier next time. ‬
