Another early(ish) rise this morning to go in to Glasgow with Fred to a watercolour workshop in Cass Art. Interesting, if slightly beneath us both, but we did get to see the new painting sticks (like water soluble pastels without the filler) and watercolour markers (double ended markers, other than that, not a lot different from any other water soluble marker pens). However, it passed a couple of hours on a Sunday morning when I would only be mooching around the house. Weather was again “Scottish”. Such an apt description.
Before the workshop, we wandered down Queen Street and looked around one of the many wee alleys in the centre of the city. It always amazes me the number of vennels there are around the city centre. Some of the photos I took are shown below.
No, the results of my watercolour workshop will not be displayed on this page. You should be so lucky!

This is rapidly becoming on of my favourite Glasgow buildings, not for itself, but for the reflections it generates. In this case it’s of the GOMA.
A wee alley just off Queen Street with boarded up windows.
I liked the way the windows ran vertically up this building in a wee alley off Queen Street.
An ideal parking place for two cars, and right in the centre of town too.
