Murals - Projected Dundee Waterfront c1910

Centre Panel of Mural, 6ft.x 30ft.                                                            Commission

This Mural was commissioned by Bob Oliver and Gordon Sneddon of the Queens Hotel in Dundee to give an idea of what the Dundee Waterfront might have looked like if the 1918 plans of Dundee City Architect and Engineer James Thomson had been carried out. This visionary man envisioned a Dundee which would have been as gracious as any city in Europe.                                                  

 I worked from Thomsons original drawings (Thanks to Ian Flett and Dundee City Archives) basing the mural as closely as possible on these. The mural is painted in acrylic and spans a thirty foot wall in the Victoria Suite in the Queens Hotel.

Design for Roof Garden, James Thomson, Dundee.

8ft x 1.5ft makes for a pretty funny drawing board

The mural was first drawn out in 1/4 scale on an eight foot long drawing board to establish the basic design and perspective. As the original drawings were essentially aerial views, and I did not use a computer to manipulate the image, this..... took some time!

My working drawing was then scaled up and painted in three sections.   The figures in the mural are all based on local people, either from old photographs of Dundee, or from  my own sketches in Broughty Ferry.
