Near Portree, Isle of Skye, Scotland, watercolour drawing on paper, signed H. R. Wilson (Horace Reginald (Tug) Wilson). c1950. Framed and glazed.
Dimensions : Frame : 507mm x 407mm x 24mm. Image : 338mm x 241mm.
Condition/Notes : Good. The watercolour drawing is in good condition with subdued colour. The scene depicts the hills near to Portree and a croft with haystacks nearby. The drawing has captured the contours of the landscape faithfully as can be seen in photographs of the location. The original pencil drawing can be clearly seen and this has been left unpainted in several areas. The painting is signed by the artist in the lower rh corner with the title Nr. Portree beneath the signature; displayed within an old multi-lined stone coloured mount which is in quite good condition. The gilt edged wooden frame is in good condition with light wear to the edges. Verso covered with a sheet of cardboard held in position by staples. The backing board can be easily removed and this reveals that the artist has titled the painting verso in ink handscript "Near Portree Scotland" with his signature below. Hanging lug attached at top. The backing board can be permanently sealed with tape if desired.
An interesting watercolour drawing.
The artist Horace Reginald (Tug) Wilson died 22.06.2006. He is known to have been a prolific artist. Recorded as serving in the Royal Navy during WWII as a Coder; served on HMS Volunteer July 41-Sept 42.
