Beauty around every corner in Edinburgh

It may not be the sunniest day in the capital and it seems winter is back for the time being, but that doesn’t stop the city’s beauty shining through. Walking through through the north of Edinburgh this morning I walked along Wariston Road and under this stone bridge over the Water of Leith. The bridge once […]

I like a little unnecessary colouring, this building could of been a single colour, or blocks of colour but no. Instead we have half circles and symmetrical colouring. Bravo! Westfield Court lies […]

Spring has sprung with the colourful crocuses popping up all around Edinburgh

Signs of Spring: Lighter in the evenings, feeling warm in sheltered sunshine, and multicoloured crocuses flooding the capitals green spaces. I love this time of year, although I love most times of the year in Edinburgh. I think it is the change I like, just when you have had enough of one season another comes […]

My favourite cafe in Edinburgh and coincidentally one of the first locations to show my work!

The Haven serves […]

A day of wonder for all the family, out at East Fortune Airfield. The Sketcher family are regular visitors to the National Museums of Scotland on Chambers street and whilst there recently twin number one noticed, rather appropriately, a flyer for the Museum of Flight in East Fortune. A place I had long thought of […]

The Café Royal, on West Register Street.

The Café Royal is a true Edinburgh landmark, with its beautiful lines and exquisite stonework it has long been a building I have wanted to draw. Designed by architect Robert Paterson the elegant stained glass and Victorian plaster work make this a stunning building, especially when light up at night which it was when I visited just […]
