Experiencing the natural world through art
The Scottish Colourists are well known to us Scots but possibly less so in England. They were a group of Scottish painters active in the early 20th C who spent some time studying in France and were influenced by bold use of colour and free brushwork. They are Samuel John Peploe, Francis Campbell Boileau Cadell, George Leslie Hunter and John Duncan Fergusson. National Galleries of Scotland had a recent series of exhibitions of their works in 2012-13-14 which I was able to visit. Samuel Peploe's son Denis was a tutor at Edinburgh College of Art, but his only advice to me was to not paint with black lines.
