...(slightly) with the geography of North Berwick! But only in order to fit in all the most recognisable bits in this view of the New Clubhouse in Beach Road and the starter's hut (although I notice that it has a swanky new sign proclaiming itself a 'Starters Lodge')
Two things I have realised whilst working on this series of pen & ink drawings 1. There really is an astonishing number of flags in North Berwick. 2. I am probably going to get a repetitive strain injury from rendering the grass.
What a marathon masonry drawing session that was! Thanks to Pat for the title of this work (whether that is tea-time or gin o'clock has not been established)
Working away at this view of St Andrew Blackadder Church, a fine looking building on North Berwick High Street, I decided that I needed some more photos to be able to draw the masonry work - having forgotten that the frontage is currently scaffolded. Hey ho. I'll have to rummage through all my old photos, I'm sure that I have some from a while ago. Otherwise Google streetview may be my friend!
Just about finished this view of Anchor Green. I may add some lettering to the finger signpost. Or I may not. And I really feel there ought to be at least one seagull (maybe having a peck at the dropped cone?)
I have been wanting to get my teeth into a bigger drawing for a while so this morning I have started laying out this quirky view of North Berwick, looking towards the harbour and featuring the Lifeboat Station and the town's historic Anchor Green and Auld St Andrew's Kirk. There will be a lot of work in this!
A few days later - making quite slow progress as I have had several meetings and a day of CPD this week. Although breaks can help with a drawing like this - it is fairly intense and requires quite a lot of thinking. I have also discovered that it is more or less impossible to 'wonkify' the Seabird Centre, as it then no longer looks like the Seabird Centre. Must be wonky enough to start with!!
