Winter light and the sun (and moonlight) reflecting on Loch Lomond is such a stunning sight. It is so beautiful i created a series of paintings, of all sizes, dedicated to exploring the shadows and reflections. This painting abstracts the view over the water and the energy illustrated by the reflections.
Mary McDonald artist works are available with Wychwood Art online to buy and in our art gallery. Exploring the structures of landscape is my starting point for creating paintings. I love to experiment with perspective and the layering of directional lines, often simplifying a subject into what I see as an assembly of elements.
I strive in my paintings to strike a balance between painting a particular subject and trying not to focus my attention on the most obvious elements.
I work from my sketch books and photographs and am very lucky to be surrounded by amazing inspirational landscapes in the west of Scotland. My studio is at home and when I’m not painting I’m mum to two young children and my husband and I are also renovating our home. As you can imagine the days with us are creative, busy and unpredictable.
I studied at Duncan of Jordanstone college of art and design, graduating in 2000. Then worked as an interior designer for many years before giving it up in 2015 to focus on painting and the family.
