A byproduct of the lockdown has been the opportunity to focus time into a drawing that I had imagined and started over a year ago. As is often the case though, life and other things take over and I only made a tentative start. This year’s 100 Days Project rolled around and so I thought I’d make use of the combined Stay at Hone and the duration of the project to get this one finished.
During the last 3 months I have tackled it day by day, averaging two to three hours a day to assemble the aerial view over the centre of Edinburgh.
It isn’t geographically accurate; it was never intended to be. It gathers icons and familiar buildings into an edited record of the amazing architecture that binds the old and new towns together around Waverley Station and the Bridges.
It will be finished probably in mid-July and available as a black and white print so please do contact me if you would be interested in buying one.
I’ll then also be creating a fully coloured version so watch this space.
