Fountain Close

This alleyway is off the Royal Mile, I pass by it almost every day and always glance in, seeing the ever decreasing doorway shapes merging into one another as you move past the opening.


I must of thought of sketching it a hundred times and now I finally have, mainly thanks to the pouring rain. I was looking for shelter on my lunch hour and remembered about this wee close.  I still don’t know where it goes, another rainy day perhaps.


The sketch is made using a fine liner black pen and then coloured using my letraset range of grey to black marker pens. Below is a photo I took on the day.
