Eleven of famed wildlife artist Donald Watson’s paintings have been made public for the first time as a group on a new webpage, on this site.

They are from the SOC’s Library and Archive and the subject matter ranges from the Western Isles to the Isle of May and Aberlady Bay, and from evocative landscapes to bird portraiture.

Donald Watson (1918-2005) was an acclaimed author and bird artist, one of the founding members of the SOC in 1936, and a great friend of the Club throughout his life. The art gallery at Waterston House is named in his honour.
