About the Artist

A Brief History  

Scott McDougall’s career spans an impressive four decades. Since beginning his artist’s practice in Queensland, Scott has travelled extensively, capturing intimately observed moments across the globe. Employing highly refined painting techniques Scott’s paintings poetically describe places and people using beautifully controlled colour harmonies, carefully modulated tones and an exacting attention to detail. Mood and the specifics of atmosphere and lighting are expertly conveyed through this mastery of colour and bring a psychological intensity to all that he depicts. Streaming, warm sunshine, cracks in the pavement and the busyness of a city street are all effectively evoked through careful observation and the sensitive handling of his medium. Scott is an accomplished art teacher and has worked as a consultant for the Queensland State Education Department. Over the years, Scott’s work has been widely exhibited and collected both in Australia and overseas.
