Rowena Comrie – Personal Statement
Rowena has lived and worked in Scotland as a professional artist for 30 years. Currently my studio is the Gallowgate, in the east end of Glasgow
‘By The Water’, an exhibition of Watercolours, shows paintings made outside, or ‘en plein air’ around the UK, all within a stone’s throw of water - either the sea, river or canal. A substantial number of them were painted at the Bowling Canal Basin, by the River Clyde, last November.
The atmospheric beauty of the waterside with often misty but sometimes crisp, clear views over the Clyde was inspirational. The panorama to the West towards Dumbarton varies with the tidal rhythm of nature, whereas to the East the Erskine Bridge is a marvellous triumph of engineering.
