Rolling my own…


Regular readers will be aware of the excellent work of Iain MacIntosh, whose work I regularly highlight on here.
I used to be a keen drawer at school thirty-five years ago and whilst I did scramble my way to an O Level, I never really built upon that. I kept my hand in for a few years afterwards though before getting bogged down in the detritus of the 1980s!
Iain’s work however has re-awakened my interest and for the last week or so, I’ve been steadily working away at this drawing, bringing the old skills into action again.
It’s amazingly therapeutic though and I can quite easily potter away for an hour after work as my brain empties of the day’s rubbish.
There’s still a great deal to be done with this first effort though and it’s very much a work in progress.
I thought I’d share it now though! 🙂

Scotsman in exile. Lover of Scotland's railways, land, people and culture. Always got an ear for new and interesting music. Politically of the left and most definitely repelled by the shallow and narcissistic. An unlikely jazz-cat mod rocker with punk tendencies; a bit 1968, a bit 1977 with a distracting overdub of 1958... Most often found outdoors with my four legged buddy!

I may even have a go too its a long time since art A levels for me, I did geography and French too, so I can at least draw French hills properly …
