Winter Sun perfectly exemplifies Colin's fascination with and understanding of the effect of light on a large expanse of water. Despite the small scale of the work, using expressive layers of oil paint, he has brilliantly described the elemental nature of the sea in this beautifully illuminated winter seascape. 

Colin’s fascination with the sea is a thread running through many of his works, as here, and he explains this simply:

‘One of my first and most abiding, magical memories as a young boy is of seeing the sea for the first time as we drove over the brow of a hill on a day trip to the Sussex coast. The first sight of the vast sea was pure delight, and the sea has enchanted me ever since.’

After training at the Reigate School of Art and Design in Surrey, Colin spent forty or so years as a book and magazine illustrator. Later he studied English and History at the University of Oxford’s Kellogg College (Department of Continuing Education). He now devotes his time to painting and his works are in collections spread right across the world, from Europe, through the US to Australia and Japan.

More of this talented artist's works are on display in our lovely Burford Art Gallery.
