Original painting of an old woman by Duncan MacGregor-Whyte

Framed original portrait of a seated old woman `picking` wool, by Duncan MacGregor-Whyte of Oban and Balephuil. Picking is the process of teasing the fibres apart to open out the fleece and make it fluffier and easier to card; some vegetable matter and dirt also falls out in the process.
