Eye Opener

archie dunbar mcintosh art | Lanark - Archie Dunbar McIntosh:

Archie Dunbar McIntosh RSW
(Acrylic on board, 58.5 x 56 cm)

Pat and I made a special trip to Edinburgh yesterday to see the Archie Dunbar McIntosh exhibition at the Open Eye. There's always a good welcome at the gallery and the paintings were terrific. I've always liked his work, but now that I'm experimenting with acrylics it was particularly rewarding to get up close to it. I was conscious of what a great range of greys he employs, as well as his little personal symbols. Well worth the trip.

And as an added bonus, I had a wonderful lime and ginger scone at another of our favourite Edinburgh stopping points, Bon Papillon, before coming home.
