WhereArtI this week Edinburgh?

Posted on Nov 18, 2019

Can you tell me where I have sketched?

A often photographed view, but can you name the place I’m standing.

Leave your answer in the comment box below. Your comment will not show up until I reveal the answer tomorrow.

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 November is a pack of my Edinburgh Christmas cards, a set of six illustrated Edinburgh locations, each one coming with a white envelope.

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 Edinburgh Christmas cards you can find them in my Etsy shop.

    It’s the Vennel I think, running down from Herriot Place to the West Port, by the Grassmarket. What a great space!

    That would be Brown’s Place in he vennel, Though you would need to stand outside the back door to Heriot’s School which was used as the Rebus Police Station, in order to get a good view.

    and Brown’s Place is the little square in the middle – harder to find that bit when memory banks fail!
