Sam Ainsley – Wednesday is Cobalt blue, Friday is Cadmium red

Wednesday is Cobalt blue, Friday is Cadmium red is Glasgow-based artist Sam Ainsley’s  first major exhibition in the city for over 30 years.

A Life In Pictures . Page 116 to page 120 . Canongate 2010 by Alasdair Gray … Only the last was completed. It was based on sketches and ideas for the Monkland Canal picture.I had given up trying to paint as a third year art student in 1955. Almost 4 feet by 8 it is still my best big oil painting. The buildings are shown accurately in relation to each other, though the road up to the canal on the right and downhill on the left was actually straight, with the central road ( leading to the city's destructor plant ) at right angles to it , so a sliding viewpoint shows the place from Port Dundas in the north to St Aloysius Church in the south round an angle of 180 degrees. this bent perspective means that the distant gas lantern on the right and the near one on the left are different views of the same . The near electrical street lamp with the old man on the right are both distantly viewed in the left. ( In 1955 street lighting still had a few gas lamps in proximity to electric ones. ) The picture also has a time shift . The foreground faces belong to the couple whose figures are downhill left.
