Pencil and paint gives Bellevue a softer feel

For this drawing of Bellevue Terrace I skipped the usual fine liner and drew with a 2b pencil instead. I pass this street almost daily and love the way the Georgian terrace curves from Bellevue to East Claremont Street. I often wonder about the shape of the rooms inside, and the gardens to the back.

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 […]

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 […]
