About Gwenda McDougall

 
 
  • Biography
    I'm a self-taught painter predominantly using oils on belgian linen extending to photography. I travel extensively always seeking the next inspiration,idea, obsession.  My first venture into narrative portraiture was inspired by an extended stay in Lima, Peru where I met my muse, a 4 year old girl named Marisol. Since 2009 I've painted several large oil paintings of her in an 'Alice in Wonderland' whimsical style. I returned to Peru in 2014 when Marisol was a few years older and could fit into a beautiful white antique dress I'd found in France. That inspired a series of photographs which I've now released as Limited Editions on archival paper which can be viewed and purchased in Artfinder.  From 2015 - 2019 I have been painting still-lifes featuring Flowers and/or Rabbits.  These sell faster than I can paint them so I have yet to load any onto Artfinder. However, your enquiries are welcome and I'd be happy to upload the next completed still-life onto my profile page.  Kind Regards, Gwenda
