Born in Greenock in 1930, Wyllie was educated at the Highlanders' Academy, then Greenock High School. He was accepted in 1949 to study at the Glasgow School of Art under the tutelage of such luminaries as Edward Odling and Mary and Willie Armour. Like much of his work, this painting mirrors Wyllie’s love of the Scottish countryside, which undoubtedly stemmed from the bank of images he built up when, as a youngster, he travelled with his parents around the country.
