A peaceful wander around Inverleith Park

Inverleith Park in the North of the city has been a favourite walk of mine for many a year, and the pond at the bottom a great place to sit and watch the city.

Not far from my home sits this park which I have jogged and cycled and walked around so many times. My children learnt to ride their bikes here, and before that my wife and I would push their buggy to the coffee van.

It’s a slight divertion well worth taking on the way into town, and it has many great views. The disney palace, the city skyline and this one of peace and calm across the pond.

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@scotlandsketcher.com

Lazing in the sunshine

A warm Sunday afternoon in the capital and with it came a walk with the family around Inverleith Park. This is a quick pencil sketch of four lucky swans, who must of been up early enough to grab this prime sunbathing  spot, right in the middle of the pond. 

Inverleith is a great park, always busy with runners, dog walkers and all sorts of team games being played. For us it’s a beautiful place to push the pram around and feed the ducks, and swans.

I was very relieved to hear the council had decided not to sell their corner of the park to property developers recently. With the amount of parents and children in the park this weekend I imagine an activity/learning centre, with a gallery and outdoor cafe would go down very well.  I could suggest a few pieces for the gallery 😉
