WhereArtI Edinburgh?

Posted on Sep 21, 2020

Monday 21st September

Can you tell me where I have sketched?

A close up on a famous building in the city, but where?

Leave your answer in the comment box below.

Your comment will not show up until I reveal the answer. Closing time for entering is midnight tonight and I will pick a random winner from all correct entries by this time tomorrow.

This week’s prize is a screen printed tote bag featuring my Edinburgh Castle illustration.

Keep an eye on my facebook and twitter feeds for clues if they are needed later today, and remember you can also see my weekly competition in the printed version of the Edinburgh Evening News each Monday.

Keep looking up and noticing the beauty in the everyday, you never know where I will be sketching next!

My Edinburgh sketched merchandise is available on my Etsy shop and I am now available for Christmas commissions. Email contact@edinburghsketcher.com for more details.
