Sunset flight – Whooper Swans
‘Whooper Swans at sunset’ – I wanted that clear winter blue with of course some real Lapis Lazuli in the right corner. I was just inspired to try and capture the way the setting sun caught just the edges of the birds and their wings seemed to glow! We watched over a hundred come in to settle on the loch that special evening.
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.
