I'm horribly behind on posting about new work up at the Shop here, but there's three new pieces that have gone up in the last 24 hours and, shockingly, none of them contain the slightest hint of bare naked human skin. Instead, there's two watercolours painted during lunch breaks in central Edinburgh and an oil painting (based on this smaller piece) of the view across the Forth from Castle Von Naggle on one cloudy day. I really ought to do more of this sort of thing, shouldn't I?
This is part of the old Observatory on top of Calton Hill - you can read a wee bit about the history of it here and here. It's not as derelict as the windblown long grass in the painting might suggest, but who can resist a little drama?
Edinburgh Castle. Nuff said, really. Would love to spend a day sketching it sometime.
The view from Aberdour on a cloudy day, looking out across the Forth towards Edinburgh. A view I should be documenting a lot more in drawn and painted form than I have in the last few years. The summer months ought to see that change, especially these sunsets with great fluffy clouds of pink and gold dwarfing Edinburgh and the Lothians. Soon, soon.
