WhereArtI 5th November 2018

Posted on Nov 5, 2018

Can you name the Edinburgh location I have sketched?

If you know leave you answer in the comment box below. I will pick a random winner from all correct entries on Tuesday morning, and they will go on to the ‘Winners wall’ for the month. At the end of the month those on the wall will be entered into a draw to receive a prize.

The prize for November is a set of my brand new coasters. These are the first coasters I have had made, printed right here in Scotland. Each one is a premium glossy 9cm x 9cm hardboard coaster, the colours really pop and they are great quality. 

Leave your answer in the comment box below …

Your comment will not show up until the winner is announced. Keep an eye on my facebook and twitter feeds for clues if they are needed later today, and I will pick a winner for the Winners Wall tomorrow afternoon.

I hope you join us to play along and keep looking up and noticing the details in the everyday, you never know where I will be sketching next time!

    #WhereArtI 5th November: This is Bell’s Brae in Dean Village. Gita Murdoch was randomly picked to go into this month’s draw for a set of my new Edinburgh coasters. More next Monday!

    According to Canmore, this is “Edinburgh, Dean Village, 15-13 Bell’s Brae, The Old Tolbooth – a Granary (Period Unassigned), Tenement (17th Century)

    and it was

    Built in 1675 as a granary for the Baxters’ Incorporation of Edinburgh. Four storeys high. Wall-head belfry added by Robert S Lorimer for the Cathedral Mission, for whom he adapted a large room as a chapel. Its fittings were moved elsewhere in 1976 when Frederick R Stevenson made it into flats.

    I can’t make out the inscription in full, though it starts with “God bless”.

    Your detail is of no. 15.
