This is also an unfinished piece... this one is my most special illustration that i have created, it is also my largest and hardest. At a lot of points i have hit a wall but i keep reminding myself how great the outcome will be. This is by far my favourite view of Edinburgh looking onto the castle. though this is a illustration in black and white the whole piece is actually coloured. The Illustration is in Fine liner and coloured pen. it is also my smallest large illustration like the size of two small hands put together.
I love Edinburgh and all the buildings in it, mainly old. A lot of the time i like to just sketch out Illustrations that could perhaps become a larger piece. I love the shops and cafe's that edinburgh has and the stand alone cafe's. I used to only ever draw black and white but i started introducing colour in to my Illustrations i realised how much more it brought them to life!
This is one of my Favourite Illustrations that i have Created. Its a view onto Edinburgh's old town. possibly my favourite section of edinburgh is its old town.. the buildings have so much character, miss match of shapes and some aren't even straight, all the windows are worn and some are wonky.
When i was at a open day at Edinburgh Art college i looked out a window down to the Grass Market and i found a Little secluded area of housing surrounding by tree's, like the Modern housing had been swallowed up by the Forests that once belonged there.
