Ringed Plovers on the beach
The colour of the reflections on the wet sand was the inspiration for this painting, we were watching a group of about 30 Ringed Plovers feeding at the very edge of the sea running back and forth – no pencil drawing to go by, just painted straight onto the Gesso board
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 often 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 approximately =190 x 425 mm
