Blue sky sketching

Today I sketched with a thicker pen, a marker almost. I thought it would make the result looser, more energetic and also force me into more confident strokes.

I like the effect, I imagine with a crowded street scene it would capture the movement and vibrancy, ideal for the festival in Edinburgh. Also  it was much quicker, perfect for when time is precious (when isn’t it 🙂

The scene is Carlton Terrace, as the street curves around into Regent Terrace and towards Carlton Hill and Princes Street beyond.
