Artist Bio - Lindsay Mc Dougall

Born in Coburg in 1954, I had always been interested in art but did not really start to paint until in my mid 20's. As an artist my focus tended towards landscape painting and portraiture, although still life and floral paintings are also an interest for me.

My first introduction into art was around 5 or 6 years old, my older cousin teaching me how to draw, Disney characters, on my grandmothers’ front porch. I was always sketching and drawing but over time became more interested in painting

I was fortunate enough to become friends with Herman Pekel, an exceptional all-round artist. His loose almost abstract interpretations inspired me and his great knowledge and generosity helped me move forward into my own artistic style

Show Less

I use many different mediums, such as watercolour, acrylics, and pencil and charcoal. I prefer watercolour and tend to paint in acrylics using a watercolour wash approach.  I love art that creates emotionfor the viewer. While not always successful, I always strive to create work that has something different from just a copy of my subject. 

My Influences

Contemporary art and impressionism.

I have been inspired by current Artists, Herman Pekel and Alvaro Castagnet among many other extremely talented artist
