Sketching and superstitions

bruntsfieldsketch lottiesketch

These are two quick sketches created with time limits under 15 minutes.  As my drawings for completed artworks can take well over an hour, I try to practice sketch whenever time permits.  Or toddler permits.  I usually can’t do any drawing when she’s about as she will swoop in, look at me with those lovely eyes and say ‘Lottie draw?’ So of course I relinquish my paper and pencil.  How could I not?

There are some things in the pipeline.  I won’t write much about them right now as I have this weird superstition, or belief, that if you speak of a thing before it is solidly confirmed, it can disappear.  I tend to get extremely excited about opportunities and start to talk about them before they are even set and then poof, it all evaporates.  So.  Am trying to reel in the joy.  It isn’t easy.


I am an artist living and working in a rather gorgeous city. My art can be purchased in various shops throughout the city as well as from my online shop. Most of my work is for commission, private and corporate. I am the founder of Crash Course in Art History Limited.
