Ardell Morton 
Leading Scottish Landscape Artist
 


Ardell Morton is a Scottish landscape artist born in the U.S. of Scottish heritage.

A traditional oil painter, she specializes in the Highlands and the Hebrides Islands where she has traveled extensively, sketching and documenting the local landscape and wildlife. A large part of her time is also spent in historical research of Scottish clans in relation to their strongholds and medieval castle sites.

Ardell considers Balquhidder, on Loch Voil in Perthshire, her home base. From there she does most of her painting, takes walks by the loch and up into the mountains, and works in the garden.

Some of her travels include climbing the cliffs of Mingulay and Staffa just to watch the puffins nest, traversing the Uists in search of legendary pictish stones, hiking the Isle of Barra for the best view of Kisimul Castle in Castle Bay, and enduring the worst of winds to reach the high promontory of Dunnottar Castle.

One of her favorite places is the majestic site of Duart Castle on the Isle of Mull, especially as viewed from the old Kirk yard with the purple mountains of the mainland reigning over the Sound. But her heart always goes back to the late night sunsets from Dunvegan Castle, on the Isle of Skye, when the seals are going in for the night and the isles of the outer Hebrides sparkle like pastel gems in the fading light.
