Dramatic perspective and stained glass in a West-End of Glasgow Close . It’s seen better days though – the tiles at the bottom are quite badly damaged
Stained Glass & Broken Tiles
A watercolour of the stairs in the Dean Gallery , Edinburgh . I’d just been to see the marvelous Escher exhibition in this space so the painting is called , ‘On the Gallery Stairs – After Escher ‘ . Also I suppose , the curving stairs are a little reminiscent of his work .
On the Gallery Stairs – After Escher
A family outing to and from Glasgow’s main ( and best ) art Gallery . A great place to spend a rainy afternoon
A Walk from the Art Galleries
It’s a predominantly grey close and the window has stained glass in it so this watercolour doesn’t have the most imaginative title I’m afraid . Titles were never my strong point
Stained Glass & Greys
An autumn image of one of the more select districts of Glasgow . Luckily , plebs like me are still allowed to walk around there
Autumn Trees on Park Circus
While wandering around Cottiers bar/venue to investigate it for a commission ( see previous post ) I was fascinated by the winding stairs ( a recurring problem of mine ) . Not really suitable for the commission I think but I liked them enough to create this painting
Cottiers is a lovely bar and venue in Glasgow’s West -End . This painting was initially a commission , but is one of a few variations I completed . This is often the way I work . I find a subject I’m interested in and experiment with several versions until I’ve exhausted the potential ( or I’m just exhausted ) . Probably a few more paintings of Cottiers to do yet though
I’m a member of the Arlington Baths in Glasgow’s West End . This is an underwater watercolour which attempts to capture the feeling of swimming in the pool with light coming through the skylights and dappling off the water
A rainy Kelvingrove Park brightened up by a jolly red hat
A painting I’ve been working on for quite some time ….. but’s now finally finished . I think . A depiction in watercolour of a wet stroll past an avenue of trees in Bellahouston Park on Glasgow’s Southside
