‘Edge of the Ocean’
Eoropie beach on the Isle of Lewis in the Outer Hebrides has the most wonderful waves. Watching the Atlantic breakers crashing in is an amazing experience.
Oil painting on Gesso board
Colin takes the presentation of his work very seriously! The entire picture is created from scratch.
He lovingly prepares each gesso board to conservation standards, and uses hand-made oil paints from a specialist supplier. He also builds each individual frame specifically to complement the painting, and finishes the frame with special wax varnish which he mixes himself. Some of the frames will have gold leaf applied to further enhance the effect.
Painting size = 400 x 550 mm
