Artwork of the Week by Peter Stewart

Artwork of the Week is this beautifully painted picture on canvas of the Duke of Wellington. Situated outside the Gallery of Modern Art in Glasgow's city centre, this statue is fairly well known by everyone living in the city as the statue with the cone on its head. Often a student prank, it is rare to see the statue without a traffic cone on its head! The angle Stewart has painted the picture from gives a brilliant view of the building across the street, and all of the reflections in the mirrored windows have been recreated beautifully. It is a stunning painting which has been admired by staff and artists alike here at Project Ability.
