The 14:29

A lone figure hurries to board a passenger train which is about to depart from Edinburgh Waverley Station.

I’ll be honest, I don’t know if any train is actually timetabled to leave Waverley at 14:29, but I picked that time as a title because it fitted with the time (14:27) I’ve displayed on the platform’s digital clock. This painting is nearly a monochrome painted in shades of a brown-black which I concocted from Vandyke Brown and Ivory Black. I say “nearly a monochrome”, because the sky is a very light blue and you’ll find tiny hints or red and yellow if you look closely.

As a scene, the interior of Waverley Station is very familar to me. I’ve known it since I was a boy – they used steam locomotives back then. Later, when I was a commuter, I was in and out of the place five days a week. It’s a large, cavernous space dating from the Victorian era, always bustling with people on the move. The row of big pillars that you see on the left help to hold up a road bridge (known, amazingly, as Waverley Bridge) that crosses over the station.
