Giving thanks to my trainers

I’ve been feeling a bit overwhelmed, busy and anxious lately. Not one thing to blame but getting out and getting a little exercise this morning has helped.

Just a little jog but I think it’s easy to get a little round up if you don’t let go.

Below are a few photos of the sketch coming together. I have never noticed the subtle stripes on these trainers before. Sketching something really makes you stop and take in what you are looking at. Good for the soul, or should that be sole 🙄🤣

I do have a handful of other jobs I should be doing but I think it is important to take time for yourself now and again.

I always say in my workshops, don’t forget about the final layer of shadow. Makes such a difference and gives a grounding to your drawing. 

Comfy footwear

These are my comfy trainers, newer versions have come and gone but these scruffy, stained and slightly whiffy pair are still the ones I go too when I just want to relax. Or more recently when I want to hit the road and get in some training in ahead of my all to soon 5k jog around Arthur’s Seat for the Sick Kids charity on 23rd October. 

I’m looking for sponsor’s by the way 😉  http://www.justgiving.com/5kforsickkids
