Colin Willey Painter

I met Colin Willey at the opening of a mixed show of work at The Gallery on The Square in Poundbury. Quietly spoken and good company Colin typifies the kind of committed painter whose daily quest is to tease out something personal from the landscape around him. Whether wrestling with light effects or changing weather patterns Colin's work is rooted in the long tradition of English landscape painting. Never showy, Colin's best work has a serenity and earthiness that will keep on giving pleasure to anyone who takes time to look.
