The low lying sun this afternoon in St Andrew Square Gardens, Edinburgh

StAdrewSq_SunshineThe sun was too bright to make out the top of the Melville Monument in St Andrew Square Gardens this afternoon.


It was a beautiful day in Edinburgh today, the skies blue and the sunshine strong. Between meeetings I was lucky enough to have my lunch sitting on the grass in Edinburgh’s city centre.


Let’s hope we have plenty more of these sunshine days as we head into autumn.


My sketch was drawn in biro, with a quick watercolour wash over the top.

A beautiful day in Edinburgh to bring the 2015 Edinburgh Festivals to a close

StAndrewSquare_2015I hope you are enjoying the sunshine in Scotland’s capital this afternoon and soaking up the atmosphere as Edinburgh’s many festivals build to a finale of tonight’s fireworks.


Here is a sunny sketch from inside St Andrew Square Gardens, as I was sitting eating my lunch on Friday.


I’m sure the busy thoroughfare looks similar today as visitors and residents alike¬†soak up the atmosphere as Edinburgh’s many festivals enjoy their final day before tonight’s Virgin Money Fireworks Concert.


Unfortunately I can’t make it on to Princes Street Gardens to hear the Scottish Chamber Orchestra play beneath the amazing display but there is still time to get your ticket, via the link below. I will be watching from the outskirts, and perhaps listening in to the SCO via Forth One Radio.
