I worked in Edinburgh for 7 months and fell in love with the city while I was there despite disliking my job. I bought a print of Edinburgh castle before I left by an unknown artist, and this is my attempt at copying it (spread over 2 postcards) ..
I’ve had a minibreak in Champagne so I’m now just warming back up slowly into the Artathon. My physio is concerned that if I keep on painting and taking French lessons my arms are going to stall at their current level of ability (maybe 65% of normal arm function?
