Notes:

Landscape and figure painter, who moved from London to Milngavie before settling in Kirkcudbright.  Almost all his works were country scenes, especially of Kirkcudbright and Stirlingshire at the brighter times of year.  Buried in churchyard with very fine tombstone, carved by his friend, the Glasgow sculptor, Alexander Proudfoot, Royal Scottish Academy.  Stewartry Museum has a collection of his sketches. "Having an idyllic sense of colour,sunlight and the pastoral life surrounding farm steadings and the intimate woodlands captivate him most" - quotation from Studio, 1922.  His watercolour The Tolbooth, Kirkcudbright, Glasgow Art Gallery, is illustrated in Halsby, Scottish watercolours 1740-1940, p227.
