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.

#FridayPainting : French Essence, Brittany Beach Walk

August is the month when I feel a little disconnected from my studio life, perhaps it's all the fresh, salty air .... 

This large painting, French Essence, Brittany Beach Walk, was inspired by a photograph I took late August a year or so ago.  It has that end of summer atmosphere - soft tones indicating the changing light, a feeling of ease and tranquility.  Summer edging into autumn .... amazing how soon it happens.
