The subject of this Edinburgh metal print is the beautiful architecture of Holyrood Palace at the foot of the Royal Mile. This is the Queen's official residence in Scotland. She spends a week at the beginning of each summer hosting events at what is officially the "Palace of Holyroodhouse." Parts of the old palace date to the 16th century but the bulk of the Neoclassical architecture is from a 17th century renovation. Like many royal palaces it started as an abbey, the ruins of which are visible on the left side of this artwork.
This Holyrood Palace art is based on a photo from my second visit to the beautiful city of Edinburgh. It was actually my first visit to Holyrood Palace which I had only seen through the gates my first time there. It shouldn't be a surprise to anyone, but it did actually rain while I was there that day. It poured most of the time I was inside the palace and as I was leaving, the skies were clearing and the palace was reflecting in the puddles. I thought it was a beautiful contrast, the wet ground and the blue skies. I love artwork that shows rain and reflections as you'll see looking through my work, but amazing architecture reflecting is really the icing on the cake.

What People Are Saying
I'm a Hill and when I saw this I just had to buy it. I have so many fond memories of spending summer weeks down in Montezuma at Nanny and Paw's store. I was so sad when the flood filled the store with water but it was a testament to the community when so many banded together to help out afterwards. Just know I bought this print to frame and take to Nanny so she can enjoy it as well. Thank you so much for making this ❤️

She Loves It!
My girlfriend just received the print, and she loves it! We both love the vibrant colors, and Forsyth Park, Savannah in general, and Tybee Island are special to us because she lives in NC and I live in FL, so every once in a while we’ll meet in the middle and explore together.
Thank you so much!

Metal prints are a contemporary and stylish choice that will arrive at your door ready to hang.
The artwork is printed on a 1/16" thick sheet of aluminum that is then mounted on a 3/4" thick wooden frame. The wooden frame is recessed from the edge of the print giving the appearance of a thin high-gloss metal print that appears to be offset from your wall.
Each metal print is made to your order and printed using archival quality materials that should last a lifetime. Metal prints take 10 to 15 business days to produce and are shipped directly to you in sturdy packaging.
The only decision you will have to make when ordering your metal print is how large you would like it to be.
