Artwork of the Week
‘Central Station, Glasgow’, Pastel, 2003
If you follow this page regularly you’ll have seen this drawing several times, but even though I did it 10 years ago now, I still like it. The original drawing is now on permanent display at the Royal National Institute for the Blind’s centre in Edinburgh. It’s quite a large piece measuring I think about 140 cm x 80 cm and is based on Glasgow’s wonderfully impressive Central Station. I catch the train to Irvine from here quite regularly and on a winter morning when the sun is shining through the glass roof it can be a confusing place for me with the bright light and deep shadows and silhouettes.
Anyway, this being almost Christmas and that, I thought I’d show this piece again as it now available as a high quality reproduction …..could make the perfect present for someone who loves Glasgow and its fabulous station. Go to the ‘Buy Prints’ section at the top of this page and follow the link direct to the printer’s website.
