Sorry if you have a problems with the painting , but this is about a friend not the Scottish people . Like most of my paintings they're snapshots from things I've seen or done,  something happens in town that reminded me of a friend who is no longer with us. Who move down from Glasgow with his job to Essex.  Every so often he'd have a bit to much to drink  have an argument which normally ended with him lifting his kilt , normally we'd drag him away before it reached that point.

Although  I'm not sure follower of football it appears that this behaviour isn't a thing of the past or something from the concert halls. As it shows up with a small number of fans from the Scottish football teams doing it to the opposing fans.

The reason for the title was Dave always introduced himself as Dave from Scotland and normally fitted in  that he came from Scotland every couple of sentences.. also as my grandmother was born In Scotland , two cousins live there and an uncle died while serving in a Highland regiment I have no issues with anyone from Scotland

Hello Alfred. Thanks for the lovely remark you left on my painting. I rarely can manage looseness in my watercolours, this one just worked out that way, sheer luck. Thanks again. Barbara. C.
