Stromness sketchings - Northlight Studios

In Stromness, my home, the winding streets are filled with strange corners and unexpected turns. I love how this corner next to Northlight studios is cut out to let cars through the tiny inexplicably two way street. There is nowhere quite like Stromness ... as George Mackay Brown said "The street uncoiled like a sailors rope from North to South"

Stromness Houses

Some more skethes of a slightly less stormy Stromness, to get me out of the house after yesterdays over indulgence on turkey and christmas pud. Happy Boxing Day everyone!

Christmas Eve Snowmen

Some snowmen that I drew by the fire on this cozy christmas eve... (The very bottom one is an homage to my first ever attempt at a building a snowman when I was 2 years old - it did not go well...)
