William Scott

Artist of my week. Visited The Bristol Museum and Art Gallery a few days ago and saw 'Fish, Mushrooms, Knife and Lemons'.  Not quite the same reproduced here as standing before it with all the glow and glistening of the oil paints. The second painting (Sennen) moves me very much, I like the grey coldness of a wintery sea and the awkwardness of the harbour wall. The pots and pans, the blues and greys  and the fish are all singing to me on a cold January day.
