Vettriano: self taught
He's a former miner and a self-taught artist, but Jack Vettriano's paintings are some of the most popular in the country.

His beach-side scenes are reminiscent of the thirties and forties - men in grey suits dancing with women in floaty dresses.

And his best known painting, The Singing Butler, sold for nearly 750,000 earlier this year.
