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 .
Very pleased to hear that my painting , ‘From the Shadows -in an Arched Close ‘ is going to be exhibited in this year’s Royal Institute of Painters in water Colours exhibition at the Mall Galleries in Central London . The exhibition is on from 6th to 22nd of April so you’ll all have to wait a little while before rushing to see it .

The current edition of ‘The Artist ‘ magazine has an article by me in it about the painting of my piece , ‘In a Blue Close – Late Afternoon’ . It was fascinating having to document the various stages of the process so I thought I’d share a moving GIF here ( fingers crossed that it works ) .

This is a painting inspired by a visit to Tate Britain in the Summer . I was fascinated by the way the warm sepia tones of the wall were reflected in the floor reflections and the picture-looking girl’s legs . One of an ongoing series of paintings looking at people , looking at art
