In July this year (2019) I will have a small group of drawings included in an exhibition at the Western General Hospital in Edinburgh, marking their 150th Anniversary. The show is being populated by the wonderful range of artists from the Edinburgh Urban Sketchers, with whom I have been sketching there on occassion since the Autumn last year.
I have drawn a few of the buildings there, but mostly the Macmillan Cancer Day Care Centre and the Maggie’s Centre behind it. The staff there are always so warm and welcoming and its been interesting watching the landscape and buildings being transformed this last year too. My coloured sketch took a while to complete, using some lovely Caran d’Ache Supracolor pencils that I was gifted a very long time ago but have never used. A couple of other sketches will be in the show too – but I would put these firmly in the ‘sketch’ category rather than the coloured image above which is defintely a ‘drawing’!
We’ll be posting details of the exhibition on the Edinburgh Urban Sketchers and on my Siddall Drawing Facebook Pages, but the dates are running from the 17th July, in the Anne Ferguson Gallery at the WGH.
