Edinburgh Castle, drawn from the south

EdinburghCastle1013Pen in hand, I attacked Edinburgh Castle from the around the back.


A view many of you may not recognise this, it is in fact Edinburgh Castle, as see from Castle Terrace.


I don’t really plan my sketches as such, disregarding the pencil and diving straight in with permanent pen. Originally this was due to time restrictions, but I do love the unexpected results I often now get. Early on in this sketch I realised I wouldn’t have enough room on the page to fit in the top of the castle. Luckily enough there was another page above 🙂

I love the added dimension this gives though, the rough and real mixed media feel. It shows the sketch in the sketch book which is great. I added a little watercolour to finish.
