gorgie farm

I went to Gorgie Farm last Saturday to make some life sketches. It was raining and the animals weren't very cheerful which was sad to look at. The good point was that they didn't move a lot so it was easier to draw them. Only chickens didn't seem to be very upset with the weather and they looked like they wanted to see how their portraits came out.

W sobotę w końcu udało mi się wybrac na miejską farmę i zrobić kilka zwierzęcych szkiców. Padał deszcz i zwierzęta nie były zbyt szczęśliwe, ale z drugiej strony łatwiej się je rysowało, bo nie biegały za bardzo. No może poza kurczakami, które należą do bardzo towarzyskich zwierząt niezależnie od pogody.

Konrad was having a chat with Basia about german shepard and I was trying to get a message out of a ginger beer label (the word "for" disappeared for some reasons).

Konrad z Basią rozprawiają o wilczurach, a próbuję odszyfrować bardzo istatną wiadomość ukrytą na naklejce z butelki mojego ulubionego piwa imbirowego.

friday morning cappucino to go

friday morning cappucino to go
A lot has changed recently. No more monday morning macchiato in. Actually I have become a big fan of take-away culture and learnt how to eat when walking and still have some pleasure form that. A few years ago I was terrified when I saw people having their coffee in a plastic cup on the way to the office and now I have most of my meals when walking from work to school or from school to work. I think this is britishness getting under my skin. It's amazing how the culture you live in influences you, sometimes against your will. It won't be long until I wake up in the morning with a labrador by my bed and a landrover in front of my house!

The good point is - I finally have my own studio! My own little space where I can work and spread my foxes all around and I don't have to tidy them up before dinner.
The fox at the photo is my first ever screenprint.

po polsku wersja nastąpi. tylko właśnie muszę biec do pracy sprzedawac sobotnią kawę na wynos!

We met this guy last week when we went for a walk to Dalmeny Estate. He looked beautiful and majestic standing on the hill and looking towards his owners "little" house.

wspaniałego konia spotkaliśmy w dalmeny estate pod edynburgiem. stał sobie na wzgórzu i spozierał na domek swoich właścicieli. tak z miłością spozierał...

It looks like travelling has become extremely popular among all sorts of animals and creatures. Perhaps they all migrate to spent winter somewhere warmer?

Wszystkie stworzenia w Edynburgu postanowiły nagle wybrac się w daleką podróż. Możliwe, że po prostu odlatują (odpływają) na zimę do ciepłych krajów...

The best thing to do in autumn is to eat plenty of colourful food. It is a great way to prepare yourself for winter hibernation.

no właśnie, najlepiej jest wczesną jesienią jeść ogromne ilości kolorowych potraw, by potem spokojnie móc zapaść w zimowy sen.

autumn

autumn already

back in edinburgh

basia in pizza express
właściwie to już wróciliśmy dwa tygodnie temu, tylko internet postanowił nie działac i inne rzeczy też pospadały na głowę i dlatego dopiero teraz nowe wpisy i szkice.

We came back two weeks ago actually...but our broadband provider decided to be very irritating and we've had no internet connection for two weeks.
