Colin Halliday

A painterly application is a very important aspect of Colin's work as he feels this reflects the subject matter best and the importance of individual marks, application is not hidden and this he feels celebrates the individual. "I choose many subjects which could be anywhere in England sometimes intimate spaces and sometimes a larger landscape view. It is by concentrating on expressive application the painting becomes more object like and not so determined by illusion this is after all a painting and not the actual landscape, hopefully it is an object of beauty".
