The Shore, Leith with India ink

A time-lapse video of myself painting The Shore in Leith using a brush and black India ink.

My India ink sketch shows Edinburgh’s beautiful docks in Leith, and this stretch of gable ended houses line The Shore, and area of restaurants, cafe’s and pubs. Perfect for a late afternoon summers walk.

Using the India ink with a brush allows for a wide range of strokes and with a little added water a dilutted lighter hue can be achieved for shading.

Below is the scanned painting, prints of which can be bought in a mount in two sizes. 150x100mm for £18 and 290x200mm for £32. Drop me an email HERE is you would like a print.
