Here are a few drawing I did during the last two weeks. To start with, a visit to St. Giles Cathedral where I took students on two occasions during the last week to draw elements of the richly decorated interior. Going to St. Giles always feel a bit like a treasure hunt to me; so many hidden details and whenever I think I’ve seen it all I discover something new.
A few days ago I cycled to Jupiter Artland where I had never been before. It was its last day open before the winter break so I thought I’d go and have a look. There were some interesting artworks on display but what really grabbed my attention were the pigs and their characterful features. I don’t think I have ever been so fascinated by pigs before. I stood watching these awkward looking animals for a while, overhearing and noting down what people around me were saying about them. I discovered that even ginger pigs get bullied!
The following two were done during another drawing trip with our students to the Inverleith allotments, which must be the best kept allotments I have ever seen. Bursting with fruit and vegetables it seemed like paradise to me (I do realise as I write this that my drawings don’t really communicate that).
