Scottish Colourist J.D. Fergusson, Cissbury and Arundel

Jay with acorn, Garrulus glandarius
On Tuesday 14th Jackie joined us to see the exhibition of the Scottish Colourist J.D. Fergusson at the Pallant Gallery, Chichester. We enjoyed the colourful palette of the artist and recognised some of the paintings from the RA exhibition of Scottish Colourists in 2000. A link with some of the paintings:
