Born in Pembrokeshire, West Wales in 1964, Bryan Evans has been based in Glasgow, Scotland, since 1988. He specialises in paintings & prints of Glasgow, Edinburgh and other Scottish towns & cities.
He is predominantly a watercolour painter and also produces etchings and mezzotints, as well as a range of reproduction prints. His watercolours and prints have achieved widespread recognition in Scotland, and he was once memorably hailed in the Glasgow Herald as the “New Scottish Impressionist”.
I’m very pleased to say that this painting , ‘On the edge ‘ is going to be exhibited at the Wales Contemporary 2022 open exhibition at the Waterfront Gallery , Milford Haven in October before moving to the Oxo Gallery in London in November
I’m very pleased to announce that I’ve got this drawing into the 2018 Scottish Portrait awards . It’s one of a series of figure studies exploring stripes ( I’m making sure I get my money’s worth out of that dress ) . the winners are announced at the end of October so …. fingers crossed
I’ve painted this structure many times before and intend to do some many times in the future as it’s one of my very favourite buildings . If you’ve not had the chance to see it yet , take the first opportunity to do so .
A largely monochrome and moody depiction of Glasgow nightlife in the city centre . This is a study that I began several years ago but was unhappy with and abandoned , until a few days ago . Something about the unfinished piece appealed so , in a spurt of enthusiasm I worked on it and finished to my satisfaction today .
A study of the moon rising over the West-end of Glasgow . The viewpoint is the corner of Byres road and Great Western Road and is dominated by the imposing presence of the Oran Mor bar and venue . This has been created out of a converted church and is a favourite night spot for the city’s glitterati .
I was recently commissioned to produce a painting of the lovely harbour at Millport on the Scottish West-coast island of Cumbrae . I often work on several paintings on the same theme at once and I’ve managed to produce two similar (ish) ones . The client who commissioned them seems to be pleased with both and is currently deciding . I’ll post an image of the other painting , here , fairly soon .
