Frank Frazetta

One of the fantasy artists who first inspired me as a child, Frank Frazetta, died on Monday aged 82. Please take a moment to look up his work and reflect what a talent we have lost this week.

Abstracted Sunlight

The sunsets have been stunning the last few nights – this is a photo of tonight’s, but because my windows are so filthy, the autofocus has picked up the window itself rather than the sunset. A beautiful accident!

George Sq. Lion sketch

After both the Kelvingrove and GoMA were closed by strike action yesterday, I was forced to work en plein air (or en plein pluie more like) This is a sketch of one of the lions outside the City Chambers in George Sq. Was fun to do but I had to keep stopping for rain showers. I drew the line at hail though and gave up eventually!
