Streets Stalls

Prints of Edinburgh

In recent years, during the summer months, particularly in August during the Edinburgh Festival and Festival Fringe, I've seen many paintings and prints for sale from stalls in the streets of Edinburgh.

Many of these artists will no doubt have their own web sites giving more examples of their work.
