Springdale artist Doug Downey
Doug is a self taught oil painter who uses a palette knife instead of a brush to create his impressionist style works. The image above was painted on site, just 5 km away from the gallery, at beautiful Rattling Brook Falls. (Image Credit: Doug Downey) He runs very popular painting workshops, carves wood, makes rustic twig furniture, and shows his work across Canada. We have 3 new works from Doug, that just arrived here today, at the King's Point Pottery Fine Craft Gallery. Keep an eye out this summer for that local painter at the side of the road capturing the light, that can only be Newfoundland and Labrador!
