A speedy sketch of an Edinburgh sunrise

THERE WAS a beautiful sunrise over Edinburgh on Friday, this view is from my bedroom window looking South over the rooftops. The silhouette of Arthurs Seat and the Crags can be seen in the distance.

With no time to sketch when I woke, I took a snap from my camera and sketched this black ink and watercolour view from on the number 8 bus into town.

A little shaky when using a paintbrush, but a great use of my time, the bus is quickly becoming my new office.
