Welcome to the blog of Melanie McDonald ! I'm a professional artist, my life is divided between my home in Newquay, Cornwall and my renovation project - an 18th Century farm - in North Brittany, France. My inspiration comes from the beautiful beaches, skies and seas of Cornwall, Brittany and Scotland. This is where I share my paintings and photographs, I hope it inspires you.

Goodbye Studio by the Sea
I've had eight studios over the last few years - all of them odd rooms in houses and other places. This studio has been the best and I shall miss it. The view has been the inspiration for many of my paintings. Dramatic light, silhouettes of walkers on the beach, far-reaching pink sunsets and shimmering waters. Now it's time to pack up and move on again. My next studio is Gauguin's Loft in a small French village in Brittany.
