Here’s what Colin has to say.

“I love to travel and record those memories in sketches and paintings. What grabs my attention is light, the way it changes the landscape day by day, hour by hour. I paint what inspires me, what stops me in my tracks.

I’m driven to create a painting on location (En Plein Air) which offers a spontaneous vitality, sometimes difficult to recreate later in the studio.

I want to help my students develop their own visual interpretation of the landscape around them, to show that they’ve noticed something they may not have otherwise. This is developing the art of seeing, using your emotional response to the subject rather than just painting what’s there.

Students should work in the medium of their choice, whatever they are comfortable with. I normally use either oils or watercolour when outdoors, alongside a sketchbook.”



Colin is also leading a week at our house in Umbria 12 June. He is returning after a very successful week last year and is a very popular tutor. Check out his week with us here. Don’t forget 5% discount for returning guests!
