Note: Donald Shearer specialised in the landscapes and seascapes of the North of Scotland. Being a keen golfer and a leading Scottish painter, it is natural that one of his favourite subjects was golf courses of which there are many in his part of the world. But it is for his highly detailed and striking landscapes that he is best known, his original work and limited edition prints being collected by enthusiasts all over the world. Born in the Kyle of Lochalsh, on Scotland’s West Coast, Donald Shearer studied painting in Aberdeen at Grays School of Art where he achieved the RSA Award. He exhibited widely including at the RGI and at The Royal Scottish Academy. RSA records show his first painting was shown in 1959 when his address was 7 Simpson Place, Dingwall and from 1979 onwards he was living at "Rossal", Seabank Road, Invergordon. After more than thirty years, his final painting at the RSA was exhibited in 1990.
