About This Image

It was not until my second trip to Edinburgh that I checked out historic Holyrood Palace in detail. As you can tell from this Edinburgh print, the baroque palace has a fairytale level of beauty. On the day I visited historic Holyrood, the weather was oscillating between frightful and beautiful. One moment, storms were blowing, the next the sun was out. The result was an ever-changing canvas for pictures of the historic architecture. And the mood was never quite the same as the last!

This print of historic Holyrood has been one of my most popular from my time in Edinburgh. The skies over the old palace are so dramatic. They really strike a chord with the audience because they are so unique. The gathering clouds contrast with the brilliant gold light. And, of course,the beautiful architecture of the historic palace bridges it all.

The dramatic skies are almost deceptively beautiful. They heralded a night of storms with gale force winds that would close down Hogmanay street party. In a way, I felt those beautiful but ominous skies mirrored the palace as well, It’s a beautiful piece of architecture, but as with most historic palaces, there has been a tumultuous history under that roof. Historic Holyrood has seen it all, palace intrigue, murders, and, yes, everyday life. In modern times, things have been calmer at historic Holyrood. While the palace is the official home to the Scottish monarch, it’s mainly used for a short official visit in the summer.

The pace of life may have slowed at Holyrood, but the historic palace is a gorgeous Edinburgh landmark with a prominent place at the bottom of the Royal Mile. And the architecture is simply classically beautiful. Don’t you think historic Holyrood fits the fairytale category of castles? With those towers and the castellated roof-line, it strikes me as a storybook perfect architecture.

Have you had the pleasure of visiting Holyrood as well? Or is it the beautiful palace architecture that speaks to you in this landmark print?

How Can I Help?

At the end of the day, it’s important to me that you can put a face with the art you’re considering purchasing through my site. Aside from the print vendor who ultimately prints and ships your order, this is a one man show. The person who made the art is the same one who is typing this message and the one who will answer your questions if you drop me a note.

You are not a number and I care that you are happy with whatever art you might buy here. I’m here if you’d like to ask questions before or after purchasing. And I’m also happy to work with you where possible to customize the work you’re buying. Maybe you’d like a tweak to the shape of a print to fit in with your existing wall art. Or you’d like to add a little nod to someone special in it? Just ask! I also keep a running list of subjects I don’t currently have but people are seeking. So if you enjoy the style of my work but didn’t find quite what you were looking for, please do let me know.

I’ve been an artist for 15 years now and most of that time it’s been my full-time passion. And it matters to both the endorphins in my brain and the food I put on the table for me (and my cats) that you find the experience of purchasing the products offered here to be a pleasure.
