Lynne Douglas









Lynne DouglasLynne Douglas is a Scottish born artist living on the Argyll coast where the light is ambiguous and ever changing.

As a child she was passionate about impressionist paintings, from the colourful movement of Monet's gardens to the sweeping power and light in Turner's seascapes. Colour and movement are strong influences in her photography.

She loves remote places, places free of human influence, where time seems to stand still. Her favourite time is just before dawn, when the world is quiet and the water still. At this time there is often mist over the lochs and hills; as the sun rises the light changes there are fleeting moments of wonderful colour. In all kinds of weather, I am to be found on a beach or by the side of a loch accompanied by my faithful companion Pippa, a little black spaniel who loves the water.

Lynne has had various commendations for her work, including being shortlisted for major competitions such as the UK Digital Photographer of the Year in 2010 and the UK Take a View Landscape Photographer of the Year in 2011 and 2012. in 2013 she has an exhibition at the Agora Art Gallery in New York in October and November and had an article about her studio published in ArtisSpectrum. She is represented by several Scottish galleries and has commissions from local business.


Balancing the influence of the Impressionists with a deeply-felt instinct for evocative images, Lynne Douglas' photographs explore the play of light and color in a plethora of mystical landscapes. Often photographing in her native Scotland, Douglas uses long exposure photography and low light conditions to capture the movement in seascapes and the beautiful essence of early morning and late afternoon scenes. While starting with a spontaneous photograph, the artist develops the results to accentuate the elements which originally inspired the emotionally charged image. Douglas' work, like that of Monet and even Turner before her, examines light itself as a variable in her images and nature as a phenomenon not to be reckoned with lightly. Like visual poetry, these photographs evoke an emotional and spiritual response in the viewer, channeling a virtuoso's aesthetic technique and a poet's soul. While seemingly varied in their subjects, all of Douglas' works speak of the wonder and unmistakable magnificence of nature.
