Scottish Contemporary Art: Artist – Louis McNally

Scottish Art: Louis McNally 'Stornaway Harbour'

Scottish Art: Louis McNally 'Stornaway Harbour'

Sold this morning – painting by Scottish Contemporary Artist Louis McNally

The title of the painting is ‘Harbour Scene, Stornaway’

’Harbour Scene, Stornaway’ shows a small Scottish fishing village on what is probably Sunday, the day of rest. All the fishing boats are moored and everything at ground level appears still and quiet. The movement and light and shade come from Louis McNally’s depiction of the sky. A tall church spire draws our gaze upwards to the turmoil of clouds above, casting their shadows down on the multi-coloured houses and fishing boats.

Scottish artist Louis McNally

Yesterday’s post featured a painting by David Schofield who is one of the two Scottish artists in our upcoming art show. Today it is the turn of the other artist Louis McNally

 

Louis McNally was born in 1963 in Inverkip, Scotland. He attended Gray’s School of Art.

 

McNally has a very distinctive and recognisable style of oil painting. He painstakingly develops his paintings over many weeks of using drawings, photos and memory. The result is often an emotive and atmospheric land or city scape with long, low horizons usually inspired by Edinburgh and the East Coast areas. These contemporary paintings have unique haunting qualities which are unusual for paintings of such undoubted fine detailing and observation. In all McNally’s paintings light pays a fundamental role as does the consequential shadow
