Since graduating from Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art, Dundee, in 1990, Jonathan Mitchell has developed a considerable reputation as a painter of the Scottish landscape with his work collected by patrons both in the UK and internationally.
Primarily working in oils,his painting is firmly within the Northern European tradition;both detailed and atmospheric. Mitchell says of his work;"I am very much a realist artist. My work derives directly from things and places as I have found them. I try to evoke a sense of place and to comunicate to the viewer what it felt like to be there; how cold or warm it was, how it felt underfoot and even what smells and sounds were there.
And, of course, light - how the scottish landscape looks when bathed in sunlight".
