No 2 Scottie Dog, Conte and Charcoal on Drafting Film

I received some great feedback about one of my Scottie drawings at the weekend, have been continuing to make dog pieces this week whilst working on updating my online stores at Artfinder and Redbubble.  

I also have a number of pictures on display and for sale at Moar for your Home in Kintore.

Prices from only £60 onwards for a small piece and you can see some of the pieces on their Facebook page.

Here is a wee scruffy scottie dog, they are such expressive little characters, this wee guy is also available to buy.  

As always I am happy to deal direct and avoid any additional shipping and commission charges for the customer.

RBS Artfest Exhibition

Really pleased to have six pieces in RBS Artfest this week.  The exhibition is at RBS Headquarters, Gogarburn to raise money for Cancer Research and Macmillan.

I have posted a couple of the pictures here and hopefully lots of money will be raised for these excellent charities.


Here is some information from the organiser of Artfest, Kim Barclay.  You can see more information about the show at

Last year, Kim Barclay decided to do something superbly positive following her recent diagnosis and recovery from oral cancer. Buoyed by determination, Kim (and a little help from her friend Audrey) put her artistic passion to good use and created...
ArtFest 2014!  

ArtFest is an opportunity for friends, family and colleagues of Kim to put their creative talents to use by selling their artworks in order to raise money for Cancer Research UK and Macmillan Cancer Support.

From 23rd June, c 30 artists will display c. 200 works of art for one week long in Kim & Audrey's place of work. All are for sale with a % (specified by the artist) going to charity. This will be split 50/50 between the two charities.

Drafting Film Arrives

Well my order of A3 drafting film arrived it's nice & thick and I can't wait to get working on it.

I'm making a series of dog pictures for sale to go up north later on in the summertime. 

The film is mounted onto paper or board using a Golden Acrylic medium.  It is a lovely surface for conte & charcoal, I've used acrylics too and they work well and I will give the oils a try too going forward.

Here's a wee work in progress for you...
