After graduating from Edinburgh College of Art, Allan MacDonald returned to his native Highlands and has been painting there since. As Allan puts it, “this corner of God’s world is extraordinarily beautiful and a ceaseless source for memorable images.”
Working primarily with oils, his paintings are mainly preoccupied with the Northern landscape. Recently however portraiture and figurative pieces have started to appear.
There is an almost magical quality to Allan’s work, the power and spirit of nature apparent. His paintings are mostly done outside on location. Allan believes outdoor observation is essential, as things happen out in the open that would never occur in the studio.
Allan’s work is increasingly recognised and sought after by private collectors worldwide.
