Glasgow University Commission

This watercolour , ‘Towards the University’ was painted as a commission . I don’t do many commissions and when I do I only really attempt ones that are variations of images I’ve done before . I’ve painted Glasgow University many , many times , so this certainly qualifies . Anyhow , hopefully the client will be happy with the painting and it’ll be winging its way to them very soon .

Wemyss Bay Station

Wemyss Bay Station connects with the ferry terminal that takes one to beautiful Bute off Scotland’s West Coast in the Clyde estuary . In my opinion it’s one of the most beautiful railway stations in the UK ( and I’ve visited more than I care to remember ) and one of the finest examples of early Edwardian architecture around . I always find it a shame that many car drivers visiting Bute probably never go inside the station to wonder at it’s splendours . Their loss I suppose .

Rotunda Reflections

The Rotunda buildings nestling on either side of the Clyde river in Glasgow used to be the entrance and exit points of the tunnel that passed under the water . I daresay some of you have been through it , though it was blocked off before I ever had a chance to . The Southern Rotunda had until very recently lain unused for years but has now been transformed into swanky office space . This is a painting I completed yesterday showing it in all its glory , reflected in the river to which it owes its existence .
