- Biography of the artist Archibald Peddie 1917-1991 was born in Helensburgh, Scotland in 1917. In the mid to late 1930′s he studied at the Glasgow School of Art, funding his studies partly with a number of commissioned pieces for various venues in Scotland but mainly by working as a salmon fisherman on the River Tay.
- His talents at the Glasgow School of Art won him a scholarship to study in Italy, however the outbreak of Word War II in 1939 meant this would never happen. After the war he took a teaching position at Naemoor School near Rumbling Bridge, Kinross-shire where he taught art. Peddie was a keen gardener and he often painted the views from his back garden at 'Rockmount' and the garden itself. It is during this period that Peddie mastered his own 'Expressionist' style of 'laying down the paint'.
- He perfected his own unique style as all great artists do, and his pictures are immediately recognisable when viewed from the other side of the room.
- In the late 1950′s he worked in Spain for some time, where the contrast of the colours and light to his familiar Scotland injected a new vibrancy into his work which is reflected in the majority of pieces produced during the 1960′s.
- Whether working in oils on board or watercolour and gouache on paper, Peddie applies the paint in strong, confident brush strokes.During the 1970′s he began to favour large atmospheric Scottish landscapes and seascapes as a subject yet he often retained some of the dramatic use of colour that he had discovered during the summers in Spain.
- Throughout the 1980′s he continued his Scottish landscapes as well as views inspired by short trips to Europe.
