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.

Studio photographs

When you enter an art gallery and see paintings displayed beautifully in a white room, it's hard to imagine everything that's gone before.  For me, creative inspiration takes place in my studio .... yes - it's set in motion by time spent on the coast, looking intensely and taking photos, but the real stuff takes place here, in my studio ....
