I seldom use maps when wandering around cities. Needless to say I have often lost myself. Around the castle, two hills stand out in Edinburgh, after climbing Arthur’s seat, I decided to go from there to Calton hill. So, keeping that hill in sight, I walked and walked, and found a small path going up. On my left, over the roofs, a labyrinth of streets.

I have had the chance to wander through the streets of Edinburgh this past January. The city inspired me very much, and I must say that I couldn’t wait to paint it. After spending some time walking on Calton hill, I spotted this very colorful house down the hill. The deep and bright orange stood out boldly in the surrounding blacks and browns.
