Autumn colours from Inverleith Park

Today I had a walk back from the city through the park and picked up a few items to draw once home.

This autumnal still life was so rich with colour and I took my time with the cross hatching catching the dark and light tonal work.

I than added the watercolour wash trying my best to capture the rich hues on show, which changed as the afternoon went on in front of my eyes.

Have a go capturing the wonderful colours that are all around us this month.

These sketches are available as both prints and merchandise and also in some cases as original artwork. If you can’t find a particular item in my shop then you can contact me at contact@edinburghsketcher.com

Autumn arrives in the capital

I may be late to the party but Autumn has caught me by surprise this year. And now my walks are filled with every shade of orange.

This time of year has always been my favourite, I’m a sucker for Christmas and favour a snuggle in front of a warm fire to stripping off in the sunshine!

But mostly I love the colours that envelope our land through the month of September and turn everything a gorgeous burnt shade of orange. I long for a trip into the Highlands or to be honest any close countryside just for a day or a few hours so I can soak up the wonder and inspiration of mother nature.

This may be the first of many crispy leaf drawings 🙂
