Lucky you, I'd love to see this!

I think that is the artist who painted a woman who looks very much like that one in the top left corner - who was wearing yellow gloves. A friend in Berwick shared that pic once when I hosted a virtual online costume party and that was what she wore, using the name of a character from Lucia in London. Oh, it's complicated - but, the image of that painting has stuck with me. :-)

So nice to discover a great artist! What a beautiful palette he uses.

I hadn't heard of the Scottish colourists until I read Rosamunde Pilcher's novel Winter Solstice (when it was published, I mean) in which one of the characters buys a Samuel John Peploe painting. Since then I've bought a book on Scottish paintings with some of the colourists in it, but I should dearly love to see this exhibition and will put those books on my Wish List!

There is to be a Peploe exhibition this time next year, Margaret! Details here: http://www.nationalgalleries.org/whatson/exhibitions/the-scottish-colourist-series-sj-peploe

Could it have been this picture by James Cowie, Nancy? http://www.nationalgalleries.org/collection/artists-a-z/C/2975/artistName/James%20Cowie/recordId/34188

You'll just have to come up again!

Doesn't he just.

Thank you so much for sharing this and especially all of the links! I followed them and learned so much!
I really like the grey/lavender walls in his studio.
That is the color of the background yarn I ended up choosing for the Mitered Crosses blanket which I have just finished. It is a good neutral, making the Noro yarns look like jewels!

Cornflower

Well done for finishing the blanket, Lila, and excellent choice of background colour!
