WhereArtI Edinburgh?

Posted on Feb 4, 2019

Can you name this week’s sketched location?

If you know leave your 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 one of those on the wall will be picked to receive a prize.

The prize for February is a set of my Edinburgh coasters.

Printed right here in Scotland. Each one is a premium glossy 9cm x 9cm hardboard coaster, they’re great quality and the colours really pop.

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 beauty in the everyday, you never know where I will be sketching next!

If you would like to buy a set of my coasters for 12.95 plus postage then you can order one HERE from my Etsy shop.

    This is an easy one even for me, tho my first thought was George Heriot’s, however the clue gives it away – It is the central clock tower over entrance to the former Donaldson’s school.
    A beautiful building always to marvel at as one walks along Roseburn Terrace to Murrayfield stadium.

    Donaldson’s school for the deaf.
    No wonder it looked very familiar as you see this every time you walk to and fro to arrive at Murrayfield!
