A night at the opera, for father and daughter

On Thursday I took my 8 year old daughter Zoe to the Festival Theatre, to see Scottish Opera’s The Magic Flute. I received an invite from Scottish Opera to capture the show with my sketches and thought my keen ballet and theatre fan Zoe would love to come too. It was our first time to […]

Sleep like an angel

Afternoon all. I was just sorting some images to use in my upcoming Edinburgh Royal Infirmary exhibition (more of which to come next week) and thought I’d upload this sketch I made of my daughter Zoe, over six months ago. I love the simplicity of the sketch, a few lines that capture her peaceful sleeping […]

Dinner time with the twins

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!

Awww, wee lamb

I was sat in the car next to my beautiful girl while she slept this afternoon. So obviously I sketched her 🙂 She looks so peaceful.

A favourite with the twins and it wasn’t long before it was all eaten up!

when you are feeding two 11 month old babies in their high-chairs, there isn’t much time to sketch 🙂

And relax

Soon they’ll be sleeping in bed, and the house will be quiet (tempting fate here aren’t I?)

On an adventure

Sketchy morning

Babies having a cuddle on the mat with a few toys. Babies seem happy, time for a quick sketch.

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 […]
