Its Festival Time – Ink and Watercolour in a Watercolour Moleskine

Another Edinburgh Festival draws to a close. The Festival started after WW2 and has grown into, arguably, the largest arts festival globally. Although it is known as “The Edinburgh Festival” there are, actually, many different gatherings. The whole of the city is transformed for three weeks and its population increases dramatically. WE are lucky, staying on the outskirts of Edinburgh, as we can pick and choose when to visit but it can be a bit wearing for folks who live and work in the town.

This is a view of East Prince’s Street Gardens, lit up with powerful lights to highlight the Scott Monument. This was a bit of a challenge but I think I’ve managed to convey the general mood.
