My name is Lindsay McDougall, an Australian Artist for over 30 years.

I dabbled in art until my late 20s, when I decided to get serious. I began formal training with Australian landscape painter Kevin Boucher in his studio in Warrandyte. I undertook additional formal training and had the great opportunity to attend life drawing classes with Yvonne Audette at the Hawthorn Artists Society. Yvonne is a distinguished Australian artist who had her early training Europe and studied under major artists such as Henry Gibbons, John Passmore and Geoffrey Miller. I was eager to learn as much as possible and to find a direction for my art. I was also fortunate enough to have had tuition with noted Australian artists Herman Pekel, Ray Hewitt and Shirley Bourne.

Herman has had a strong influence on my art and has inspired me to work with more focus on the play of darks and lights and the power of darks in my painting style. I also credit the exceptional American artist Alex Powers with my move towards a similar focus and, importantly, a design process that allows me to capture more emotion in my work (particularly my portrait work).

My work is eclectic I paint landscapes, seascapes, cityscapes, still life and portraits. The majority of my work is done in oils. I have also completed larger figurative and portrait works in acrylic with some mixed media, employing charcoal and pastels. Most of my landscapes, cityscapes and seascapes are completed plein air (on-site) with little studio alteration. I feel that this lets more authenticity and emotion into the work. I consider myself very fortunate to have Australia as my artistic playground with its incredible offerings and variety. I hope that my work will take you into my world and the inspirational place that Australia is.
