Old Faces _ New Faces


I got hard at work with the life drawing again today, and thought I'd like to share today's efforts with you. Great model, intense day.. it isn't often that I get the chance to really sit down with a model in front of me and draw for a long time. Usually the sessions I go to are maximum two hours in length. After having been along for the day to Wasps Studios a couple of weeks ago and really enjoyed the whole day drawing I leapt at the chance to hang out at Whitespace and take advantage of their six hour session.

My website is coming along slowly, I put it on hiatus for a few weeks as I've had some other bits and pieces to sort out but keep your eyes peeled. This is happening folks! :)

Man With Annoying Mouth Contemplating That One Of His Hands Is Infinitely Bigger Than The Other Hand

Or, I haven't been life drawing for a year and this is what happened...


I had an awesome day of drawing at Wasps Studios in Dalry yesterday - here are my sketchings!

They are having some open days over the next month which I highly recommend that you check out if you can. The open days are being held at all the different studio spaces all over Scotland.

I'll be back at life drawing regularly to loosen up my mark-making and brushing up on my observational drawing so do expect a flurry of sketches on the blog for the next few months. :)

Tiles & What?!



So a month or so ago I went on my very first ever Urbex trip to a big ol' abandoned house in the Fife countryside with a friend and fellow artist.

I've been working on editing up the photos, putting my own unique lil' twist on them. The finished pieces will go up on the new website but I thought I'd post this little piece here for now. You can get a couple of close-ups of the two pieces I've finished already over on my tumblr.

Long Time No See N'Aw Dat



So, a little while ago I switched to using tumblr instead of this blog. Partially because I wanted to create a more visual diary of what I am all about, and also because it's a more exciting platform to be working with and easier to link in and connect with other artists.

I am back here as for a writing platform the blog is certainly a whole lot easier! Also as I am in the process of *finally* rebuilding my website and will be linking back into this blog as well as visually forward into my tumblr.

For now, enjoy this random image and certainly check out my tumblr for what I have been up to in the last ten months!

Cooking Miscellany



Just a couple of images left on the glass after a little mono printing session last week. I liked the compositions of these more than some of the prints I ended up with..! So I've taken them into Photoshop and had a little play about with colour/contrast and saturation..
