Artist A-Z

John Donaldson

John Donaldson is a highly accomplished artist and musician. His creativity is evident from his original art; beautiful compositions of landscapes painted in vibrant, expressive colours.

John remembers watching his grandfather paint watercolours, unable to recall a time in his life when he didn't paint and doesn't believe he ever made a conscious decision to become an artist, it was something he grew up doing and still enjoys to this day. To begin with, John followed his Grandfather's lead and painted in watercolours, but by the age of thirteen he had discovered oils and found the physicality of the medium suited his style and approach, allowing him to push the paint around the canvas and develop a painting over a period of time.

In his late teens John studied composition and classical organ under Professor George Austin in Brighton and continued this training after a move to Chichester in 1965, where he met his wife. Over the next ten years he switched his musical allegiance to modern jazz and electronic music, a passion that he still harbors today.

John now splits his time between the West Country and France and cites Provence, the Cote d'Azur, Liguria, Umbria and Tuscany as some of his favourite places to paint original art.

When asked to describe his work John recognises that his paintings are not easily labelled but feels his work is best described under the heading "impressionist" in that there is no hidden meaning behind his work, he simply wants to communicate the beauty of a fleeting moment by being honest about what he sees and hoping someone else will identify with his interpretation of that moment, which is parallel to what early impressionist painters were trying to achieve.

Johns biggest fan and keenest critic is his wife, Sandi. After finishing a painting he will always ask Sandi her opinion of the piece. John puts his success, in part, down to the honesty with which she comments on his painting and what she says goes!
