WhereArtI Edinburgh?

WhereArtI Edinburgh?

Can you tell me where I have sketched?

Can you give me the name and location of this beautiful city centre sculpture? 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 September is a Shore tea towel. 100% cotton and featuring my sketch of the iconic street, this will look great in your kitchen or make a great gift for any Leith lover!

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 Edinburgh tea towels you can find them in my Etsy shop.

    Ah ha!

    This is the only one I’ve known for sure so far!

    Woman & Child statue. Festival Square.
    Erected in mid 80’s to commemorate those imprisoned in apartheid S. Africa. I think its original position was in the middle of the square. But it was moved when the Sheraton Hotel opened.
