A selection of 35 pastels and oil paintings as well as one sculpture from Angus Donaldson are being exhibited at Elgin Museum. It is the third time the Glenlivet artist has shown his work at the town centre attraction. And Mr Donaldson explained that inspiration from the local area was never far away. He said: “I enjoy painting the sea because it’s always changing. I’ve included a lot of seascapes looking out along the Moray coast as well as some landscapes at Findhorn and Lossiemouth. “I like painting animals and birds too. There are some hares and a young donkey, which I’ve had some good reports about so far.” Mr Donaldson added: “As in life, I always think art develops from your mistakes. It might not be what you intended originally but that doesn’t mean it won’t turn out better than you intended.” Angus Donaldson’s exhibition Another Eclectic Collection will be shown at Elgin Museum until Saturday, October 27 during normal opening hours.
