SKETCHES MADE FOR CREATING THE SHIP MURAL, GLASGOW, SCOTLAND 1990

The mural is acrylic on plywood, 25 X 100 feet. The brick wall is 8 feet high which gives a good idea of the scale of this building where ocean going freighter ships were built.

 

       

 

     

I made scores of sketches in preparation of painting the mural, and doing portraits of the actual ship builders who also would be taking part of the giant theatrical production of THE SHIP, which was performed during Glasgow's celebration of being the European Community's Year of Culture choice city.
