South Queensferry near Edinburgh

This sketch was done from a photo taken by Oggy who sadly passed away recently.  He was a much loved member of the Paint my Photo website that I'm always raving about.  It's a view of South Queensferry near Edinburgh and I loved the way the stone archway framed the view of the street beyond.  I had saved this photo to my favourites folder on the website as I intended to use it for the sketchbook project so it's now a wee tribute to Oggy for having taken some great photos for people like me to use as inspiration.
