Born on Canada’s East Coast, Lorne McDermott now resides near the southern shores of Georgian Bay, where he is known for painting large-scale oil paintings of the ever-changing waters and skies.

Lorne watches and contemplates the shoreline, absorbing the colors, energy and mood reflecting back.  The sketch that follows this process provides the lines for the painting, but it is the oils spreading across the canvas that allow it to breathe.  From here the painting begins to grow with emotions and passion. According to Lorne, it is this creative exchange, the conversation between artist and paint, which allows his canvases to come to life.

Lorne has recently launched his personal blog site at Follow Lorne, via his blog, on his motorcycle journey, keep up to date on his current projects and musings, or check out his latest paintings here.
