This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Please note: Artists not classified as American in our database may have limited biographical data compared to the extensive information about American artists.

Donald McIntyre spent his childhood in northwest Scotland. Both his early experiences of the Scottish landscape and the artists he encountered there seem to have influenced him throughout his life. He always returned to coastal scenes of the British Isles, particularly in Scotland and Wales, and he developed a palette and painterly approach based on the tradition of the Scottish Colourists* and their followers, Francis Cadell among them.

Although Donald McIntyre, a gifted natural draftsman, had painted from his youth he trained as a dentist. Yet while studying at the Glasgow Dental Hospital, he attended the evening classes at the nearby Glasgow School of Art*. He later served in the army and became an Education Health Officer. At 40, McIntyre decided to pursue painting as a full time career.

Donald McIntyre had by then moved to North Wales but, as the Scottish Colourists did before him, spent most summers painting on Iona. He often made landscape studies in situ(on-site) finishing larger works back in his studio. Yet even the studio works maintained the essence of these sketches painted en plein air which gave his painting much of its character: lively, spontaneous but well considered, and created with an enthusiastic mastery of paint.
