‘Winter Song’ – Whooper Swans

We are very fortunate to see these wonderful birds quite often and this painting shows the swans leaving the Isle of Islay as the waters – even the sea froze.  This was an unusual year as Islay rarely gets snow and ice

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 = 330 x 550 mm
