Colin Halliday’s new solo exhibition The Nature of Paint will be on at St John Street Gallery in Ashbourne from March 23-April 6.
Colin prefers to paint outdoors on location and only occasionally produces work in the studio.
He manages to create a timeless quality in his paintings by focusing on nature itself as his subject, avoiding any figures or buildings.
He paints with thick, pure oil paint, applying generous amounts to create interesting textures, causing the finished painting to sometimes take over a year to dry.
You will not find fine detail in Colin’s work, rather a suggestion or hinting at it, thereby retaining a painterly quality.
Colin has been painting for 34 years and has been professional for over 18 years.
