Going Home – Acrylic/Ink in a Watercolour Moleskine

This is, Dalmahoy Road, the main road into our village. It joins the busy A71 route into the west side of Edinburgh and is just over one mile in length. Most of the four access points are about one mile from Ratho so this guarantees a seasonably quiet village existence. This doesn’t mean Dalmahoy Road is quiet itself. It is often quite busy and, because it is quite twisty in parts, can appear a bit nerve-racking to visitors. This scene was inspired by the last few minutes of a video I shot from the car (I wasn’t driving). See what you think – and remember we drive on the left in Scotland.
