Look up! Lanimer Day 2022

Over the course of a week, there have been two back-to-back celebrations here in Lanark. The Platinum Jubilee has led straight into Lanimer Day 2022.

A Crown for the Jubilee

I thought it was timely to share a few sketches of Lanark to mark this lively time of year and I have to include the parts of the town that appeal to me most – the roofscapes, windows, chimneys, towers and eaves…..and the colourful bunting that makes it all feel like summer is here at last, even with grey skies!

Chimneys, roofscapes and church spires….

Jacks the Ironmongers – you name it – they’ve got it. Fantastic shop.

Buckets, wheel barrows, bird tables and watering cans

Here’s the top of North Vennel. In a few weeks there will be a dinosaur lurking around here.

Signing off with Tea Time on the corner of the town where Castlegate meets Hyndford Place.

If you see any work that you would like as a print – just get in touch. I’ve recently topped up my Etsy shop so please have a look!

Thanks for reading and Happy Lanimer Day 2022
