Lanark Sketches

Girnin Dug Lanark

Sometimes the long street scenes don’t catch all that I want to include. There are countless vignettes here in Lanark which I’ve made a start on sketching as part of my exhibition ‘Streets of Lanark’ in the Tolbooth from Monday 28th Oct for a fortnight.

I’ve added all these sketches in a new page in this blog ‘Lanark Sketches’. Click over to see them all including some cropped close ups as I know my other sketching friends reading here like to have a good close look.

Of course I had to include the real local hero ‘the Girnin Dug/Dog/Doogie’. Couldn’t decide which was his best side, so drew them all, including a close-up!

Just the one sketch of New Lanark so far…

Thanks for reading and hoping to see one or two of you at the exhibition.

  1. Ha ha! You are very perceptive. I was literally peering closely at the lines wondering whether you use a fountain pen, with my nose about two inches from the screen as I read, “…I know my other sketching friends reading here like to have a good close look.” 😄 Wonderful drawings as always Ronnie. (For some reason WordPress bounces me back when I try to Like on some pages at the moment, but you know that I always do.)
