Watercolour

   Painting by Weir  -  Granton West Pier, 1887

Granton Western Pier

 

Watercolour

Watercolour, 1935  -  based on a sketch, 1888

NOTE:  I had no idea of the true colour of this painting when I first added the photo of it to the web site.  All I had seen was a photo of the painting that had very little colour in it.  However, I subsequently bought the painting at auction, and I can now confirm that its tone is very similar to the one described as YELLOW below.
