Louis McNally’s paintings of the Scottish landscape, towns and coast have a distinctive quality, sometimes reminiscent of Victorian artists but undoubtedly contemporary in style and effect.
He usually paints in oils, working from drawings, photographs and memory, with close attention to detail. The finished paintings have an often haunting, always striking, quality and transform familiar scenes into moving, atmospheric studies.
An exhibition of his work opened at the Red Rag Gallery, Stow on the Wold over the weekend.
Louis McNally’s Solo Exhibition is at Red Rag until 3 July, www.redraggallery.co.uk
