Wash of colour

Posted on Nov 30, 2011

Tonight I finished my sketch of this shop on the Royal Mile, I love the colour and interest these shops bring to the High Street. This particular one, Ness, sells a beautifully colourful range of tweed, tartan and woollen clothing for women.

I posted my initial pencil sketch earlier this week, here. Not wanting to leave the drawing as black and white due to the fact it was the colour that first caught my eye, I waited until I had a little time and then added a watercolour finish.

See below for a close up of the shop.
