Visions of Edinburgh - March 2012

I showed this series on Edinburgh at Amber Arts, March-May 2012,  a selection of ink line drawings & oil paintings on my personal visual exploration of the scottish capital.
"To prepare an exhibition about Edinburgh as a painter is a visual treat, the town merges history & contemporaneity,  nature & architecture, sea & land (...) While preparing this exhibition I realised Edinburgh has many views from which one can admire & contemplate her. Peaks to climb on,  like Arthurs Seat or Calton Hill, steps in secret pathways like Jacob's ladder, or the cemeteries and parks that give us exceptional panoramas on the "windy city".  She has definitely charmed me and this exhibition at Amber Arts shows the first results of my personal visual take on her."
