WhereArtI Edinburgh?

WhereArtI Edinburgh?

Can you tell me where in Edinburgh I have sketched this week?

This stone detail is above a window and is one of many carvings on this particular building.

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 June is one of my new Outlander tea towels, which features locations from the hit television series, including Linlithgow Palace and Hopetoun House.

Printed right here in Scotland, each one is a machine washable, 100% cotton and screen printed with one of my sketches.

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 one of my four available tea towels (now all £9.95 plus postage) then you can order one here from my Etsy shop.

    #WhereArtI Answer – June 3rd: Grove Street, on the corner of Fountainbridge. Now Grow Urban, a plant shop. Previously Stampers Grove and before that Fishers Stores. Well done to the very few correct answers this week. Art McKie was randomly picked to go into the draw for June.

    Only that it used to be Fishers Stores, I found this lovely photo on LostEdinburgh: https://www.facebook.com/lostedinburgh/posts/fishers-stores-on-the-corner-of-grove-street-and-fountainbridge-1950-this-fab-lo/481641218526436/

    It’s part of the cardmaking/stamping shop on Fountainbridge/ Grove Street.

    RCHAMS is being unusually obtuse about the building’s history. Any ideas?
