Sketch a story

This is a commission I recently completed for a couple engaged to be married next year. The sketch tells their personal story – where they met, took their first walk, got engaged to finally where they will hold their wedding reception next year. All in the beautiful city of Edinburgh.


By focusing on a few key buildings and areas of Edinburgh the sketch tells a story and highlights favourite city locations.

If you would like to tell your story in an EdinburghSketcher illustration then please get in touch HERE and we can discuss details, and together create a truly original and personal piece of artwork.


Sunrise over Edinburgh

There was a beautiful sunrise over Edinburgh this morning, this view is from my bedroom window looking South over the rooftops. The silhouette of Arthurs Seat and the Crags can be seen in the distance.

With no time to sketch when I woke, I took a snap from my camera and sketched this black ink and watercolour view from the number 8 bus into town.

A little shaky but a great use of my time. The bus is quickly becoming my new office 🙂
