Autumn colours on London Road

After a break away it was good to be back on the streets of Edinburgh today.

This morning I had a little more time to myself after the kids returned to school so drove through town taking in all the falling leaves and low sun shadows of the cities fine buildings.

I parked up on London Road to capture this view towards the top of Easter road, with the London Road Church seen on the left. The orange and yellow leaves were falling from left to right and the sky in the distance changed from white to grey and then a slither of blue shone through.

Above shows the street I sketched and below a square crop of the painting which I like the look of. Maybe a print for the shop?
