Waiting to set sail on the Firth of Forth

Three boats enjoying a magnificent view of the Forth Bridge.

I crossed the Queensferry Crossing last week for a day of sketching in Fife. This ink and watercolour drawing was created at the boat yard in North Queensferry as I was being battered by winds and showers!!

I couldn’t leave before I caught the three boats resting in the mud. I love to sketch these with a minimum of ink and a splash of colour and then zoom in to see them on their own. I just imagine the adventures they must have sailing underneath the huge iron arches of the Forth Bridge.

A fantastic place to draw and also sail under, I have in the past been lucky enough to pass under all three bridges with the Maid of the Forth and recommend you take one of their trips around the Forth.

This sketch was drawn with a fineliner and watercolour set on location and can be bought as a high quality print here: BUY THIS PRINT.
