From 1915 to 1924 Johnstone spent most summers at Kirkcudbright, which supported a noted artists’ colony. In September 1918 Cecile Walton, the artist wife of Eric Robertson and daughter of E. A. Walton, visited Johnstone at Greengate Close, one of the cottages rented out as summer studios by the artists Jessie King and E. A. Taylor. Cecile Walton, Johnstone’s portrait of her close friend, was painted in the countryside behind Kirkcudbright on that occasion and exhibited at the Royal Scottish Academy the following year.
