Colin WilleyArtist Colin Willey graduated from Cheltenham College of Art in 1995. Hard work and determination quickly established his career as a landscape painter.  He was a finalist in the Windsor and Newton Young Artists Competition in both 1997 and 2001. He has exhibited at the Mall Galleries several times. Colin’s paintings featured in the Laing Landscape Exhibition, the Royal Society of Marine Artists (RSMA) Exhibition and the New English Art Club Exhibition. In 2005 he won the Diana Brooks Prize at the ‘Art for Youth’ exhibition. More recently, four of Colin’s paintings were selected for the House of Lords permanent collection in 2011.

Colin paints on location in all weathers, thus creating paintings that respond to the changes in the landscape. He describes his technique as requiring a ‘gutsy approach’. Working quickly, Colin captures something of the moment before it passes.  His paintings are about experiencing nature first hand while being out in the elements. Colin hopes that you can sense him ‘battling with the wind, the rain, the flies, the drama of an approaching rain storm and the approaching herd of inquisitive cows’. Paintings of Dartmouth and the Dart River hang alongside vistas of Start Bay. We love showing Colin’s work for its authentic and timeless representation of our location.

Colin frames his work himself. Each piece is presented in an elegant moulding finished in neutral Farrow & Ball tones.
