WhereArtI this week?

Posted on Jan 13, 2020

Can you tell me where I have sketched?

This fairly new statue stands proud outside one of the city’s most popular attractions, but can you tell me where …

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 January is one of my screen printed tea towels featuring a sketch of Edinburgh castle.

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 tea towel you can find them in my Etsy shop.

    It’s the only statue of The Bard in Edinburgh, and it’s about to be moved 25 feet because of the tram work in Bernard Street in Leith.

    It stands at the end of Constitution Street/Bernard Street.

    PS – I share his 25/1 birthday 😀

    That would be William Henry Playfair outside Chambers Street Museum.

    Like me, I don’t think he would recognise the area now compared to when he was at University.

    That’s William Playfair, architect of many places you’ve sketched for us, including the National Museum on Chamber Street where you’ve tracked him down.
