This is the Usher Hall, on Lothian Road in the west end of Edinburgh. The city’s key venue for visiting national and international orchestras and the main venue for the Edinburgh International Festival.
The building owes its construction to whisky, as it was funded by Andrew Usher, a whisky blender who donated £100,000 to the city specifically to fund a new concert hall.
The building has featured in my WhereArtI competition before, I sketched the lions head above the entrance, the image is below.
Although meaning to I have never sketched the building in its entirety before and so I was glad to be asked to for a commission. If you would like to commission an illustration then prices start at just £65, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
You can buy a print of this sketch from just £18 plus postage in my shop.
