Painting Up For Auction

This watercolour of mine from nearly 25 years ago, is coming up for auction at McTears in Glasgow on Sunday.  Quite a few of these sort of early pieces are now coming out of cupboards and on to the market!

It's a watercolour and pencil piece on A0 cartridge paper.

Although catalogued by McTears as 'Seated Model', it was originally called 'The Stand In'.  The reason for this was that it was done during a life-drawing class at Glasgow School of Art, on an occasion when the usual model didn't turn up so a clothed model had to stand in for the session.

Bafflingly, I have no record of selling the piece myself, so I have to admit it's a mystery as to how it's come up for auction!

It has a reserve of £150-250.  To go to the McTears Scottish Contemporary Art Auction page and to view Lot 1988, just click HERE.
