The Queensferry Crossing is taking shape across the Firth of Forth.

QueensferryCrossing_BeingBuiltToday I was at South Queensferry sketching the Forth road bridges, both current and future.

I parked my car at the RNLI car park looking out over the Forth in between the road bridge and the rail bridge. I’m always looking for new angles and I spotted this angle of the new bridge being built, behind the current road bridge, and all framed in a section of the iron railing in front of the car.

Sketching on location.

The sketch shows one of the three towers of the new ‘Queensferry Crossing’, with cables stretching out on either side. I look forward to returning once the road bridge is complete, it looks pretty impressive so far.

Sketch drawn in an A4 heavy weight watercolour pad, with a 0.5 fineliner pen and a watercolour wash over the top.

This original ink and watercolour sketch measures 290x200mm and is available to buy for £165. Prints can be purchased at £18 for 150x100mm or £32 for 290x200mm. Email me to order.
