Wooosh

Posted on Aug 3, 2013

FrederickStTattooSketching on Frederick Street this evening, soaking up the Fringe atmosphere and waiting for my take-away Chinese to be cooked. Suddenly woosh! – these two jets flashed across the skies, and my sketch.

 

They fly low over every night while the Tattoo is on at Edinburgh Castle, and what a noise they make! 🙂

In the background of the sketch you will see the Tattoo stands, erected each year for the event. If you are visiting the Tattoo have a fabulous time, by all accounts it is quite a spectacle. I’m not sure who the statue is of at the top of the road, can anyone tell me?

 

This sketch shows a return to my Letraset pens I was using a few months back, much quicker and less fiddley than the watercolour, and more vivid colours.

 

Below is the black and white version, before I added the colour.

    Here is the back and white version, the sketch before I coloured it in.
