When out for a meal we always have pens and paper to keep the kids amused while waiting for our food.
On Sunday we were at Dobbies Garden Centre for a wander and grabbed a bite, or rather lots of bites to eat before visiting the rabbits, hamsters and tropical fish.
Inspired by our trip to the Museum of Edinburgh during the week, and their wax crayon rubbing plaques, we made our own version with lose change. Here are the results, plus a quick pencil sketch of James concentrating on his work.
Day 2 on this sketch, drawn whilst waiting on a bus today. The building is Granton Parish Church and I’m not sure how long it will take to complete as that depends on Lothian Buses, and what time I arrive at the stop in the morning. But as soon as the bus arrives I will stop and take a photo of my progress.
You can see the sketch from the first day HERE. I noticed by the date on the ticket it is over a month since I started, thanks to the prompt bus service here in Edinburgh!
Another of my bus stop sketches today, which I do whilst waiting on the bus. I don’t know how long it will take to complete as that depends on Lothian Buses, and what time I arrive at the stop in the morning. But as soon as the bus arrives I will stop and take a photo of my progress. Anyone recognise the building?
BusWaiting sketch1 is from the North Bridge and you can see it HERE. You can also see I haven’t been back to do any more on it yet as the sun has been out and I’ve been cycling to work.
