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.

Beautiful Brittany - Cotes-d'Armor and Finistere, Brittany.
Pointe de l'Arcouest, Cotes-d'Armor, Brittany
Plane Trails over the Ile de Brehat, Brittany
Early Morning, Pointe de l'Arcouest, Brittany
Parked up just a few steps away from the Baie de Goelo .... I could see a broad horizon of sea meeting the sky, and the beautiful Ile de Brehat in the distance.
Rain Coming in - Little Beach, West Finistere, Brittany
Upturned Boat, Western Finistere, Brittany
Wild Coast, Western Finistere, Brittany
The western tip of Finistere is wild - the wind blows and the rain falls in this spellbinding place. It reminds me of the west coast of Scotland and Land's End in Cornwall. A remote Celtic out-post, with great grey granite boulders and silver skies. Mystical and inspiring.
