Taking inspiration from our magical environment with elements of nature, sea and the built heritage.

We hope to work outdoors but we do have a warm indoor space for these most unpredictable of Scottish days.

Meet outside Mimi’s café. Learn how to capture Lauriston Castle with ink and water colour drawings. On these 2.5 hour sketching tours, Mark (known locally as EdinburghSketcher) will guide you around the castle grounds, picking out details in both architecture and nature that will help describe the techniques he has picked up over a decade of sketching around the city.

Each class will touch on details, perspectives, depth and composition, as you go from 5 minute exercises to relax the hand and work on composition, to 30 minute detailed vistas. Mark’s sketching tours are perfect for all levels, from beginners to those who would like to learn more about his unique speed-sketching style, or to practice sketching with ink and watercolour. A mount to house your finished sketches plus all materials needed on the day are included. This is a walking and sketching tour so come dressed for the Scottish weather!

Additional Dates: 21 June 2024, 24 July 2024, 18 August 2024
