    I saw him perform several times, brilliant live, and such a shame that he felt he had no alternative but to commit suicide. This is a fitting tribute to an excellent musician......

    Frightened Rabbit: Image of Scott Hutchison on display at portrait gallery

    A "celebratory" photograph of Frightened Rabbit singer Scott Hutchison has been unveiled in Edinburgh.

    Mr Hutchison took his own life in May 2018, aged 36.

    The black-and-white image of the smiling singer on stage with his guitar is now on display at the Scottish National Portrait Gallery.

    Photographer Ryan McGoverne said the photo captured something important in Mr Hutchison's character.

    "He was a raconteur on stage, his legendary banter in between songs was just as great and enriching as his songs," he said.

    "He looks happy here, wide-eyed and talking to the audience. At home."

    Frightened Rabbit was formed by Mr Hutchison and his brother, Grant, in their home town of Selkirk.

    The singer-songwriter spoke of joy of creating music, saying there was "no greater feeling than bringing a new piece of music into the world, almost out of thin air".

    Image captionMr Hutchison's family, including his brother, Grant, and his mother, Marion, were at a private unveiling of the portrait on Friday
    His family said he spoke openly of his struggles as an anxious child, even naming the band after a nickname given to him by his mother.

    As an adult he was open about his fears of social situations.

    He died after the weight of his mental ill health became too great for him, his family has said.

    Earlier this year they set up a charity in his memory - Tiny Changes - to support efforts to improve mental health in children and young people.

    The portrait, which was taken in 2014, was acquired by the gallery earlier this year and it has gone on display in the gallery's modern portrait exhibition

    William Blake's "Ancient of Days" is projected on to the dome of St Paul's Cathedral in London to commemorate his 262nd Birthday.
