    For the past few years I’ve spent ages drawing and painting buildings. I love some of the quirky architecture that we take as granted around here. I’m not religious, but churches are my absolute favourite buildings to visit and I’ve learnt a lot about dating parts of them. I also love traditional pubs.

    Digital sketches of Governor’s House in Edinburgh. Im still learning about Procreate and drawing on the ipad. In some ways I like it more than pen and ink, in other ways I don’t. Jury’s out :lol:

    They said I was MAD to build a castle in a swamp. I built it anyway. It sank into the swamp.
    Edit: found it.

    Here’s a sketch of a fisherman’s cottage in Mullion Cove, Cornwall.

    As a background, I used sketching as therapy for a while. This was one of the first I did after I broke my index finger of my right hand pretty badly. I tripped while having my fingers looped through the keyring of a big set of keys. It should’ve been a minor fall but as I put my hands out to catch myself the keys acted as a lever and the keyring as a noose. I snapped the bottom bone of my index finger clean in half, dislocated and fractured my knuckle and basically it was an almighty mess to put right :soma:

    I still can’t grip pens and pencils like I used to but it is a lot better and I’ve developed a pencil grip with my middle finger now anyway.

    Fab! :)
    I'm downright agnostic (which is probably an ironic phrase), but I LOVE medieval cathedrals, and Renaissance iconic art.
