Over the last three years the two artists have created a unique project across Britain.

And now Carl Lavia and Lorna Le Bredonchel are in the midst of producing a large-scale ink portrait of Aberdeen as part of their ‘Sketchnthecity’ initiative.

The pair have already depicted Stirling, Perth, Dundee and Inverness, with the works now on show in assorted galleries and museums.

They are now looking for somewhere to exhibit their detailed 10-ft picture of the Granite City, which they expect to be finished in the next two months.

Studio

Here we have #Birmingham #Manchester #Dundee and #Edinburgh. Completed since this video, the cities of #Stirling and the mapping of the 6th city #Perth – slowly but surely the #69cities of the #UK are being inked.

Ms Bredonchel said: “We’ve covered a number of cities in Scotland and after finishing the Inverness work – which is on display in the city’s museum art gallery until next August – we are hard at work on the Aberdeen sketch.

“We start each work with what we call the ‘scaffold’ stage: I form basic pencil gridlines and outlines of buildings across the canvas to allow Carl time to embellish each structure.

“The Aberdeen sketch will probably grow a little, because we are aiming to include more of the port and we think it will end up being around three metres once it is complete.”

The duo visit the cities while they are engaged in their ventures and gradually collate a street-by-street work which also includes all the most famous aspects of the subject.

Their Inverness depiction includes the Kessock Bridge and Victorian market and Mr Lavia also depicted Fort George, which he regards as a pivotal part of the Highland capital.

A sketch has also been made of Dundee and Perth, read more on The Courier here.
