Elizabeth Blackadder, ‘A Fife Farm near Burntisland’, ca. 1952, The Scottish Gallery

This early sketchbook drawing dates from the artist’s time at Edinburgh College of Art. The high horizon may take influence from her tutor and friend William Gillies, but the nervous energy of line, and assured mark making are entirely Blackadder’s own.
