I sketched this in the cafe at the Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art.
I called in to see the exhibition of SJ Peploe, leading light of the Scottish Colourist movement at the beginning of the last century. I was struck by his progressive development to abstracting into geometrical shapes while retaining the overall composition in still life or landscape.
I was also moved by the sculptures of Eduardo Paolozzi. “Vulcan” towered above my table in the cafe. “Tyrannical Tower Crowned with Thorns of Violence” lurked in an alcove.
