After a nice nine-night stay in Stornoway, I had a shorter visit to Edinburgh. I arrived around 4pm on Saturday afternoon and left after lunch on Monday. I spent Sunday at church etc with Esther Semmens and family so that meant I had two half days for sketching.
Esther met me at my Airbnb apartment and we headed to the Grassmarket. We found the best table in the place (sadly the food was terrible) and I did two sketches. The first was a direct watercolour sketch and initially I thought I would have to add lines. However I had plenty of time so I was able to take it slowly and stick with paint.
I then joined Esther and a group from Urban Sketchers Edinburgh. Pam (originally from Australia) is doing a great job forming a local group here. It was lovely to meet Susan, Hilary Sandy and Andrew, and I had a fantastic morning sketching the Scott Monument (x2). Sadly we all forgot to take a photo of the group.
All in all, a great (brief) visit to Edinburgh.
