Art Print Description:
This Holyrood Palace print is based on a photo taken on New Year’s Eve day on a visit to the beautiful Edinburgh Royal landmark. The weather was, predictably wet, but in between the raindrops, there was some beautiful light that really highlighted the gorgeous Baroque architecture of the old palace.
I loved the contrast between the blue skies, the moody clouds and the wet pavement reflecting the royal palace. So much contrast and depth! I’ve gone over the original photo by hand, leaving in the details that most struck me like the small collection of people standing in the plaza outside. I love the sense of scale they gave to this Holyrood palace print. Without people sometimes it’s hard to gather how big or small a building may be.
The Palace of Holyrood House, as it is officially known, is the official residence of the Queen in Scotland. But outside of a period in the summer, the royal family spends more of their time in Scotland at their private residence. I say with some irony that I’ve never toured the inside of Buckingham Palace despite going to London several times, but I had to see the grounds and inside of Holyrood Palace. There’s just such a sense of history there and it feels like a proper old palace to me. It’s the type of fairy tale castle you would find in the pages of a storybook.
To me this Holyrood Palace print captures much of the spirit of Scotland from the changeable weather to the landscape. That’s a little glimpse of Arthur’s Seat in adjacent Holyrood Park. And on the left hand side are the ruins of Holyrood Abbey – more history!
Built in the 17th century, I think Holyrood Palace is very much in keeping with the idealized image people have of old European castles, from castellated roof-lines to towers! Actual medieval castles didn’t tend to be quite so grand never mind the large open windows. But our view of them looking back from modern times tends to be more like this beautiful palace
Does this Holyrood Palace print appeal to you because you have also walked on the same wet pavement outside this grand palace in Edinburgh? Or does this Edinburgh Royal landmark simply live up to your mental image of what a proper palace should be? Maybe you have other connections to Holyrood Palace and Edinburgh that brought you here looking for a new piece of art?

I purchased this pair of Tisdale artwork (Dawn Divides and Contemplating Life) for a wedding gift. The couple are getting married this summer in a facility on the Chattahoochee in Roswell, GA. This pair of photos on canvas is going to mean so much to them. I could not be more pleased to give them as a gift to my son and new daughter-in-law.
The Lighting in this print is stunning! Thank you!
We ordered several of your pieces for hallways and a few offices at our business. Everything turned out great.
Thank you so much!!
The print is absolutely breathtaking! I immediately went and had it framed, I just couldn’t wait to display it.
I’m excited to show off your work to my friends and family. You are one of the most talented photographers I’ve seen and it’s a pleasure to own your work.
I just dropped it off at the framing shop on Friday and had a look at it… It’s absolutely beautiful.
I purchased it to replace a painting of Paris and to be honest the way that you have captured Dublin on the river at night makes it look more beautiful than Paris.
Beautiful photo, you are very talented.
Love it… the print arrived today and looks awesome!!
Now I just need to get a suitable frame and get it up where it can be enjoyed.
I love my “Toomers Drugstore” and “Auburn Supper Club” prints from Mark. He does an amazing job and every painting has detail and awesome colors. His Auburn prints are a must have for fans that love Auburn as much as I do!
I gifted my father with this piece (Troy’s Snack Shack Print) and he loves it! He thought the man in the doorway was him.
It was my father’s birthday present. Thank you Mark. It brought back wonderful memories for him.
Just wanted to let you know, for Christmas, my sister got me a GIANT photo from you of the mountains and sheep in Connemara (Ireland).
It is really beautiful and I love it. Gotta have it matted and framed next.
It’s simply beautiful! The colors are so vibrant and powerful.
I took the photograph of the house to be framed and the young lady who helped me choose the mats and frame was so taken with the photography that she asked for your name so she could see more on the web.
If you hear from an Erica I want a commission!
My daughter sent me this print as an early Mother’s Day gift. It arrived today and I love, love love it!
Yes! I got my tractor print in the mail today, and I love it! It is beautiful. It is vibrant and ….perfect… and I am going to frame it and hang it asap! I love it. Thank you Mark! You are an amazing photographer.
I treated myself last year to two of your lovely works of art. The telephone box & the Scottish cottage on a country lane. Love them!
…thanks to Facebook and finding Mark E Tisdale, a special print will become a memory in my parents’ home this Christmas…
DeAnn just called me so very excited, she received the picture. She thinks it’s just beautiful.
Thank you so much and I’m sure you will be hearing from her too.
I ordered a framed print of the Macon County Clinic and Nurses house . My mother… worked there from 1956 until the clinic closed. … It is a beautiful artwork and looking forward to seeing her face when she gets this gift on Christmas. Thanks for the Great GIFT!!
Originally I purchased these cards to give for Easter, but they are so beautiful I decided to frame and keep them for myself.
Mark Tisdale’s work is excellent.
