Not Blonde

A recently finished life study. The title is a private joke between me and the model, which I’d happily tell you about, but it wouldn’t be private then , would it?

This recently finished depiction of Oban seafront was painted as a commission. It’s an image I’ve had at the back of my mind for several years but it sometimes takes the offer of money to get it on paper. I’m fascinated by the way the McCaig’s tower folly looms over the town.

More Emergencies

During the heavy snowstorms of March 2018 a few brave students in Glasgow’s West-End valiantly defied the elements to provide succour and sustenance to their less able , fellow students . So impressed was I with these efforts that this is my second attempt to depict the scene .

Off to Rothesay

Wemyss Bay station is one of the most beautiful train stations in the UK. A wonderful example of very functional architecture. It always dismays me on my way to the ferry and onto Rothesay to see all the car drivers and passengers sat in their vehicles instead of wandering round and enjoying the building. I’ve photographed and painted the station a number of times, and here’s one of my efforts.

Sledging in Kelvingrove

The recent ‘Beast from the East’ inclement weather brought the country to a standstill but provided lots of fun from the young (and young at heart) in Glasgow’s Kelvingrove Park. This is a painting trying to catch the fun.

Emergency supplies

During the recent heavy snow many hardships and deprivations were endured by the citizens of Glasgow. Luckily, there were some hardy souls willing to brave the harsh weather to bring sustenance and refreshment to the suffering students of Glasgow’s West-End. I’ve attempted to record one of these selfless acts of bravery here. (Any sponsorship from Tennent’s gratefully accepted).
