View of Edinburgh

Price: £2200

View of Edinburgh from Leith. Watercolour, signed inscribed and inscribed on reverse with location and date 1843. 14 1/2ins x 20ins. Callow visited Scotland in 1843 , travelling to Edinburgh on September 12th. This is a view from Leith Harbour across the water towards Edinburgh, sketched in pencil overlaid with watercolour. I believe this watercolour was painted on the spot . There is very little pencil line under the colour ,all the shapes and forms are created  with washes . The distant hills and church spires of Edinburgh are beautifully caught through  a light haze, while the harbour walls and buildings of Leith are finely detailed.
