Fife Ness

The most easterly point of Fife, looking north. This part of the East neuk is dominated with remnants of WW2  – pillboxes, a large aircraft runway with brick and corrugated iron hangars. I like their presence, it reminds me of Orkney and its wartime architecture. Some large drawings in the summer perhaps….

Back to some drawing. I can’t quite leave Montrose. There are always more songs. This is the mottled tarmac, crane and fence posts that lead to the docklands.

Ninewells community garden.

Here are a few of the brilliant drawings made by those that came along for a drawing workshop I was leading in Dundee’s Ninewells hospital garden. We had a lovely day and the weather was warm and sunny. Thankyou to everyone who came and took up the challenge! I had a great time, as always in Dundee, and the new V and A by the way is looking suitably dreadnought -ish sitting, menacingly on the bank of the Tay.  Brutalist in black concrete. Braw.

Stills from the short film ‘Leavings’. This piece is, as the name suggests about leaving, yet also it is the remnants, or traces of ourselves we leave behind.
