The view down Fleshmarket Close is always a favourite and recently the snow fall in Edinburgh made this view even more special.
One morning in early February I got wrapped up in extra layers, gloves and big boots on and ventured into the city. The snow had not stopped the night before and everywhere was covered with a thick layer of crisp snow.
I took probably a hundred or more photographs, every corner revealed a new picture perfect scene, places I know so well but with a new slant, a freshness and cleanness which snow can achieve.
I did try to sketch on location but with minus temperatures my fingers didn’t last long before I had to stop and return to the warmth of my studio to work.
I have a number of photos to work from so you may see more snow sketches on here as the spring arrives in Edinburgh.
