‘Winter Morning ‘ — With the sun barely risen and snow clouds clinging to the summits, this painting captures that feeling of intense cold just before dawn.
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 = 380 x 615 mm.
Now framed in an ivory and silver moulding – see images
