Colin Halliday

Colin Halliday is influenced by and compared with the likes of Turner and Constable who pioneered a romantic notion of the british landscape.  Colin draws from this work and carries the baton over 200 years after these groundbreaking paintings. Born in Carlisle in 1964, Colin grew up surrounded by the beautiful Pennines in rural Cumbria. This landscape was to have a lasting impression on him.

Colin realised the growing importance for him of the “application of paint”, and that painting landscapes without reference to people or buildings allows that to predominate adding a timeless quality to the work.
