Europe09: Day 16 - Last Day in Edinburgh

November 24, 2009 | Leave your thoughts

My third day to explore Edinburgh – wow! It is such a beautiful city – I am glad to have a few days to wander its streets.

This day was Open Doors day and I was hanging with Eza (my sketching companion who was coming to Paris with me during the last week of my trip) We booked a tour of the Advocates Library and had maybe 20 minutes to spare… Of course a sketch was in order. This was still wet when we returned into Parliament House.

I did these sketches during the tour – it is good practice to work so fast. Paint added from memory 2 weeks later on the flight home.

An Australian in the Scottish autumn was feeling rather cold and so we found a nice warm café to have a hot bowl of soup – had a nice view too. I don’t take my journal too seriously hence the red and grey lines! A lovely sight seeing and chatting day with less sketches than a ‘normal’ day – but Eza and I would make up to it when we were in Paris!
