John in Kelvingrove – charcoal study

John in Kelvingrove charcoal

Another charcoal study for a future oil portrait. Not too distant in the future, I hope! This is John, pictured in his (and my) favourite building. Glasgow’s Kelvingrove Art Gallery. This is where I learned what paint looked like up close. It is where I was introduced to Whistler, James Guthrie and Henry Raeburn. One of those places that no matter how many times you visit, something new catches your eye every time.
John is standing close to the balcony on the first floor with the Salvador Dali room behind his shoulder.
