I was out for a jog the other day when I was stuck by the glorious blue skies contrasting against the sandy stone coloured bridge, mottled with shadows. The bridge carries Great Junction Street over the old railway path, now a busy cycle route into Leith. I love these paths that criss-cross around north Edinburgh, […]

I have been practicing my clouds recently, and this dull morning last week was perfect for combining some grey clouds with a little perspective sketching, plus a lovely church in the centre. As often happens I was driving along the road when I spotted […]
