Megan Lightwell is a contemporary Tennessee based painter working in the tonalist tradition.

Her serene, atmospheric landscapes are painted with a restrained palette, compressed values and an emphasis on soft edges.

I particularly enjoy her compositions which she projects depth with receding planes of increasingly muted chroma and value.

Be conscious of the fact that the “Paintings” gallery on her website is divided into subsections accessed from a drop-down menu. I almost missed that at first.

You can also find additional examples of her work through the galleries in which she is represented.
