Living in Australia it was inevitable that Colley Whisson would turn his brushes towards the sea.  (His great grandparents sailed to Australia in 1910 on board the Corinthic bound for Hobart, coming from Whissonsett  in Norfolk. ) His career spans 30 years during which time he has perfected the swipe of the flat head brush to convey slabs of light and dark forming shapes with stark shadows that only occur in hot countries, his pallet being often muted by the sun bleached subject matter.  (You can see him painting on youtube.) His work commands modest pricing at the moment, these pictures ranging from £715 to £1060 so why not invest in something you can enjoy every day.
