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 is a record of things and places as I have found them. However, my paintings aim at communicating to the viewer not just the physical appearance of a particular place, but also what it felt like to be there”.
