This one has lain dormant for several months. Sometimes it is incredibly hard to get back into it again after all the interruptions which occur generally, but having loosened up with fireside drawings I am now getting back into it. The preparatory sketch for this, Before there were Saturdays, was finished on the 17th of this month which helped a lot. That took some time to do, but it was worth it as I have a much clearer picture in my head of where I am going with the main drawing.
Welcome to my blog! I am an artist in Fife, Scotland, represented by the Open Eye Gallery, Edinburgh.
I do illustrative work under the name of Binky McKee. Click the picture above for a link to fairy tales, magic, and cats doing silly things - plus a little about why I chose the name Binky!
PIC OF THE WEEK
Edinburgh College of Art's very own Athena Nike - with empty wine glasses at her feet! (not all mine).
I attended a function in the Sculpture Court this week, it was great to be able to wander about at leisure and revisit a few of my favourite things. I haven't been in the Sculpture Court for a few years, last time I was only passing through delivering work.
I drew this one so many times as a young student (the wings and clinging drapery got me back then). It was lovely to be able to stand right next to her and appreciate her body and wondrous sturdy legs!
