This is just a one-off. I don’t have what it takes, in either my hands or my brain, to equal the florid Edinburgh landscapes of Jennifer Thomson. It’s still a cut above the bloody Edinburgh Sketcher though.
The building is based upon the non-public facing side of the Morningside ice cream parlour S Luca (last summer, S Luca was having new slates added to its roof). Various important architectural features have been bent or amputated, however, to make me happy and my picture calm. So this is a landscape, not a portrait.
