James_Kay_-_Whistlefield,_Gareloch_-_oil.jpg
Whistlefield, Gareloch457 viewsAn oil painting by James Kay RSA RSW entitled 'Whistlefield, Gareloch', which in 2014 was valued at £9,500. Kay lived there at Crimea (now Dalriada), Portincaple for 33 years and worked in a studio at 79 West Regent Street, Glasgow. The house belonged to his brother Alec, a shipping office manager. The name was chosen when they moved there in 1909 because his father was a Chief Petty Officer in the Royal Navy during the Crimean War, serving in the Black Sea area. James painted an elaborate mural of scenes from the Crimean War on the walls of the main entrance. Image date unknown.

Waverley at Helensburgh614 viewsA print of a painting by Ian Orchardson, who lived in Saltcoats where he taught as an art teacher and died in 1997. He left teaching to concentrate full time on his interest of painting Clyde shipping, including steamers and clippers, as well as the series of six famous 'Doon the Water' stops of Helensburgh Pier, Dunoon Pier, Gourock Pier, Greenock Pier, Rothesay Pier and Wemyss Bay. His paintings give an authentic feel of shipping on the Clyde in times past, and examples of his work are highly sought after.
