ALLAN MACDONALD (b. 1965) is best known for his ‘painterly’ Scottish landscapes in oil. These are often of light energetic birch trees, the northern coast, or a shadow cast from vast mountain. MACDONALD’s work has often been compared to Tom Thomson, of the Canadian ‘Group of Seven’.
ALAN MACDONALD has lived most of his life in Inverness-shire and studied at the Edinburgh Collage of Art. In the words of Art Critic Georgia Coburn
‘Allan MacDonald’s breath taking seascapes reveal why he is regarded as one of the UK’s most respected and accomplished landscape artists. The beauty of MacDonald’s Art lies in its sheer physicality and meditative insight. His is an Art of going out to face the elements in all weathers, in driven pursuit of moments of understanding and connection.
