This, for me, epitomises Glaswegians - strong, vibrant, industrious. The heavy industry has mostly gone now, but the ethos remains and this painting encapsulates it all for me. Apart from that, it is a jolly good painting!! :) The forms and colours are very pleasing.
P.S. And I am an Edinburgher!!!:D

Solid, Clyde. . . Sounds such a beatnik, doesnit. . .

Love it. Convincing canvas use. Seems like done in oil and wiped out in places to thin, which makes for a nice glow to the colors from the transparent pigment over the white of the canvas.

really first rate painting and I love industrial themes.. they are so interesting arrangements of geometric and organic forms.
