Drawing Tour to Parkhead Necropolis and looking beyond

27 June 2017



We began the final Parkhead Heritage Trail urban sketching tour by loosening up with some fun warm up sketches – blind drawings of the buildings nearby and abstract line drawings.



Afterwards we walked from Parkhead Cross to the Necropolis where we had the first demo looking out of the main gates to the Forge shopping centre, and folk worked on monochrome sketches nearby from trees and gravestones, and foliage, capturing the sunlight and shadow and varied textures.











We then went on to a colour study with pens, moving up the hill for a vista into the windiest spot for some really invigorating drawing! The tea and cake afterwards was very well deserved.

The first Urban Sketching Tour in Parkhead- following the heritage trail

10 May 2017

Rubbings of the ground and buildings, word drawings, sketches with graphite and pens – really enjoyed the urban sketching from Parkhead Art Studio led by Alan Wilson and the luck of the dice to see which task to work on!
