Limited edition Prints of Edinburgh Castle | Edinburgh Prints – Alan Reed
Edinburgh Castle Prints with clouds being swept past the Castle. The cyclist pressing on purposefully, there is a strong feeling of movement in this painting.
Many of my paintings of Edinburgh depict the castle almost as a backdrop to some other aspect of the city. As in this scene of street life in the Grassmarket.
I’ve used loose brush marks to render the sky. The figures moving in and out of the shadows and the dark, heavy foreground all help to add drama and life to the overall composition. Titled “Castle from the Grassmarket Edinburgh”.

History of the Castle
The Castle is one of the oldest fortified places in Europe. With a long rich history as a royal residence, military garrison, prison and fortress. It is alive with many exciting tales. When you climb Castle Hill, you will walk in the footsteps of soldiers, kings and queens – and even the odd pirate or two.
Though parts of it remain in military use, the castle is now a world-famous visitor attraction. It’s also an iconic part of the Old and New Towns of Edinburgh World Heritage Site.
