Rocky Shore, Pittenweem by John McGhie

In this charming picture - a sketch, really, perhaps largely executed on the spot - McGhie has captured the stance of the child and the relationship with his mother with extraordinary sensitivity. The sea and the rocks of Pittenweem are, as one would expect, depicted with an array of harmonious tones. But it is the freshness and immediacy of the painting which is most striking.
