Sketchbookity- not for the easily offended.

The graphic imagery is what I wanted. I have decided to call this project 'blood on their hands', and this refers to the shocking behaviour of some sectors of the church during the 17th and 18th Centuries. Hanging was a near daily experience in the city of Edinburgh with bodies left on display as a reminder to the citizens of what happened to those who did not conform to society's rules. I don't think my final piece weill be as dark as this, but we'll see when I get up into the workshop tomorrow.

Sunday Morning

Yes, I know its Wednesday, but I have been so busy I didn't get round to loading my photos up. Here is my Greyfriars trip documented in my favourite photos from the day. Expect sketchbook pages inspired by these soon, in the meantime, I'm off to another dissertation lecture...
