Maker's bio

I study landscapes, weather and seasonal change with a strong emphasis on colour. Currently I am painting with oils, but I regularly produce work with oil pastels, acrylics and inks. My love of the landscape and the ever changing weather conditions are my starting point, developing my work through sketches that explore composition and colour. From here, I work to create vivid and stimulating final pieces.

Wayne Kingston reviewed: Landscape oil painting

"I enjoyed the course very much. Laura was very helpful and I was pleased with the end result. Even more important was that my wife was impressed with the results."

Laura Donaldson responded:

"Thank you Wayne. It was lovely to meet you and I’m thrilled that your wife likes your paintings! They were both great pieces of artwork with such fantastic stories behind them. It would be lovely to see you in the studio again if you fancy making the trip. "

Lindsay williams reviewed: Landscape oil painting

"Enjoyed my two day oil paint course with Laura at the lovely Ferrers Art Centre. Laura gives a brief overview then allows students to delve into the work themselves. All materials are provided and I thought the course price very reasonable. Lovely cafe and deli on site so a very pleasant experience and place to paint."

Laura Donaldson responded:

"Thanks Lindsay. I’m so glad that you enjoyed the course. It was a lovely couple of days in the studio and I look forward to welcoming you back. "

"Laura's oil painting workshop was fantastic. Relaxed and informal in style and was a small number of people so had an intimate and personalised vibe. I would thoroughly recommend Laura's courses and will be re booking again soon. "

Sally reviewed: Colour loves colour. Abstract acrylic painting.

"I attended Laura's Colour Loves Colour Abstract Acrylic Painting workshop at her Studio - what a fantastic experience! I'm a complete beginner, and Laura worked with us to create some fab paintings, and teach us lots of really useful techniques and tricks! All of the paint and equipment was supplied, with plenty of tea and coffee provided throughout :-) Laura has a wonderful spirit and is very passionate about art and it made me feel very relaxed - it was an incredibly relaxing day (in beautiful surroundings too!) I would HIGHLY recommend this course. THANK YOU Laura! xxx"

Laura Donaldson responded:

"Thank you so much! It really was a great day with a fantastic group of people. Your work was beautiful and I’m thrilled that you had such an enjoyable time. I look forward to welcoming you back to the studio whenever you like. "
