Dublin Street corner

A Dublin Street Corner

… in Edinburgh, no less.

This particular Dublin Street corner is at the bottom of the steep hill down from York Place. An easy walk from where the Edinburgh trams currently terminate. Although, I would caution against the walk back. Especially if you’re lugging a suitcase.

Look. at the first excerpt. You’ll see a detail which immediately attracted me to the view – one of Edinburgh’s antique street lamps. And, from the visible sign, you can work out exactly where this view is.

With bare branches creeping into the top right, you might guess the time of year. However, the sky over this Dublin Street corner should be a dead giveaway. Provided you know what’s hung at the Scottish National Gallery every January.

Mind you, this isn’t the first piece I was told had “Turner skies”. When I put my piece Lights on Bellevue in for framing, I received that rather nice compliment. Along with a little enlightenment; I’d not known the National Gallery is required to hang their donated Turner collection during January.

I’ve yet to add that piece on the site. Dublin Street corner took priority. Since it’s currently on display. Pop into Joseph Pierce’s bar, at the bottom of Elm Row, for a look. I’ve several other pieces hanging there. Including a dramatic A1-sized poster print of Fettes’ College.

Later today I should have copies of this up in the shop. Firstly, I’ll be offering 12″ x 16″ fine art giclée prints. However, this is suitable for printing at much larger sizes. Get in touch if interested in a bespoke version. I’m happy to quote based on budget; and, will ship to almost anywhere.

The framed copy of Dublin Street corner on display in Joseph Pierce’s bar is priced at £120. Unframed copies of the signed limited edition (of 50) are £35.

Where's the gunpowder? It's for a vintage flash, ... Honest!
