Today 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.
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.
