Splendid sandstone architecture in Edinburgh’s Southside

marchment-crescentI stopped at the junction of Marchmont Crescent, Marchmont Road and Spottiswoode Road to sketch this view.

Last week  I took a drive through the city to Marchmont, an affluent residential area of four story tenements to the south of the city, separated from the Old Town with the Meadows Park.

The area is stunning when seen in strong sunlight and even better when that has a dark stormy sky in the background contrasting against the sparkly buildings.

This drawing was created on location in an A5 sketchpad, with pen and watercolour using my watercolourbrush.
