Posted on Sep 1, 2013

CraigwellCottage_colourA sketch for an Edinburgh holiday rental, to use as an avatar and postcard for guests.


This is Craigwell Cottage, just off the Royal Mile in Edinburgh’s Old Town. A lovely wee building which was once part of the old Craigwell Brewery, which dates back to 1822.

My sketch is hand drawn in black ink with a little colour added digitally.

As with all commissions the original sketch comes with a high quality digital version on CD, ready to print or use online.
