Clock Towers Return!

Another drawing, as I am really busy at mo.

Back to the clock towers! I drive past this every day on my way to work, it is now part of Aberdeen Hospital but was built in 1857 as a Boys Reform School.

The hospital is a typically unfriendly looking Victorian institution; a huge, gothic building with a looming tower.

I must admit that my biography project is not progressing as well as my watching all of Buffy the Vampire Slayer project...

Science Wols

Really, this post should be devoted to:
What fantastic weather we are having/me being able to speak again/the gorgeous Hugh Jackman in X-Men Days of Future Past.

All of these are good, but hard to draw, so here is a picture of scientist owls I drew instead.

Spring Fling

This week features a guest artwork, a Rural Mural from the Spring Fling event.

Last weekend we visited Alistair's parents for Craig's 30th birthday. It was the weekend of Spring Fling, an arts event held across Dumfriesshire.

You can visit artists homes, workshops, potteries and galleries. All the artists are local and there are over a hundred places to see, many in the depths of lovely countryside. We took in art, illustration, ceramics, jewellery and furniture making.

This wonderful mural was on the wall of Dalton Pottery. You can see it being created here: Mural Youtube Film.
