Description

Princes Street Gardens

Edinburgh is a lovely city to visit, particularly in the summer months. For this painting of Princes Street Gardens, I wanted to capture it from a more unusual angle. I decided to climb Scott’s Monument, It’s 200 feet and 6 inches high and from its various viewing decks. You can get some outstanding panoramic views of Edinburgh from here. This view which I’ve captured in watercolour features people relaxing in the shade of the trees. I always think Scott’s Monument looks like a Gothic version of Thunderbird Three.

For this painting of Edinburgh, I felt it was important to include figures to give a sense of scale to the overall scene and to provide a contrast of detail to the loose treatment of the grand trees that grace the Gardens. Edinburgh Castle and the National Gallery in the background contribute to the composition by adding further interest and depth.

Whenever I visit Edinburgh these days, I always try to visit the National Gallery, you always get a good lunch here too. My favourite painting there is Lady Agnew by John Singer Sargent. It is superbly painted and demonstrates Sargent’s masterly ability to handle brush and paint.
