Colin Page - Artist
When you think of Maine, you don't think of sunshine, but that is what you see in Colin Page's plein air paintings. There is an exhibit on view until January 30th at the Camden Public Library of paintings he has done in Camden, with proceeds to benefit the library.
All of his work is done on location. He will be offering plein air workships this spring and summer in Maine with an emphasis on paint handling, composition, color, drawing, and how to look more carefully.
In addition to landscapes, he also does still lifes, interiors and figures.
"The painting should look as though it breathes and has a life and presence of its own. All of my paintings are done almost entirely on site and are meant to capture the atmospheric feeling along with my own moods of each part of that day."
