So many commissions to do lately which is fabulous, thanks to everyone who has ordered an original Edinburgh Sketcher piece as a gift this year.
I’m off this lunchtime to my usual haunt, a wee table in a warm coffee shop. You may see me scribbling away, photo propped up on a full coffee cup, pens and waters colour paints laid out on the table.
For those who haven’t ordered a commission but would still like to give the gift of Edinburgh Sketcher art, I am creating some vouchers to buy.
Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
No prizes for guessing where I was today… whilst waiting for a lift off Mrs Sketcher I doodled this sketch. I added the shading later digitally.
Many thanks go to @Starbucks for stocking their new gluten free tuna roll. It’s soft and fresh and yummy, and sad as it may be it made me happy. So I bought another one and sketched it in thanks 😉 One thing though, please send more to your Edinburgh stores – I’ve seem to have eaten them all 🙂
Another day and another Starbucks … this one with Joanne and Zoe, who both appear to be in a trance, people watching out of the cafe window. The square and coffee shop first appeared here in Thursdays sketch: https://edinburghsketcher.com/2011/08/25/old-and-new/
I have been spending some time at Edinburgh’s Royal Hospital for Sick Children, or Sick Kids recently as my wee boy recovers from a bump to the head (All is going well, thanks). Across the green space that is the meadows there is a cycle and walk way that climbs the hill from the park towards Lauriston Place, through what used to be the Royal Infirmary.
My sketch shows the new development, including a Starbucks, and the old Infirmary buildings on the right which I presume are being developed into flats?
