About The Artist

It wasn’t until the age of 40, that Irene was at last able to follow her dream; to study Fine Art and later to become an Art Tutor.

Soon after completing her studies, she co-founded the AVA Art Group, formed to encourage Art into the community, which ran for many years. Irene’s own Art began to evolve.

Irene Colquhoun's Artist Studio

Art Groups / Exhibitions

Irene was offered the chance to exhibit in London; Waterloo Gallery and The Mall Galleries.

She was and is a member of various Art Groups and continues to exhibit.

Later, further afield, she and her husband purchased a cave-house in Andalusia, Spain, with a studio, where she paints when on holiday, exhibiting locally there.

Please email Irene for art & commissions, quoting "Hampshire Artists Query".

In 2012 She created a series of work for her Solo Exhibition, celebrating the Olympics, based on “movement”. Irene’s techniques have continued to evolve and now, she explores everything around her. Her unique representation of portraiture, movement techniques and quirky art such as “food on a plate”, have brought her so much pleasure and others too.

About The Artist

My work is principally focused on interpreting and expressing a sense of place. I seek to express the unique quality of places… landscapes, seascapes and townscapes.

I have studied and qualified in Fine Art, Landscape Architecture and Urban Design and I am a fellow of the Landscape Institute. I have always had a love of painting from the very earliest age. I have been fortunate in my career as a Landscape Architect to design and to have had built, four dimensional ‘ Big Art ‘ on a large scale, which have matured over time and have become memorable places, I hope.

There is great satisfaction in seeing people enjoying the environments that I have designed and I have gained a number of national design awards for my work. It is only relatively recently that painting has absorbed me once more and it feels like I have taken a long journey to return to a first love!

More About The Artist

I find painting the most immediate and expressive of all artistic practices. I am drawn to painting mainly landscapes and seascapes, which I believe is rooted in my particular love and understanding of ‘landscape’ in it’s widest sense. In it’s essence, this is the connection between place and people, at a specific time to create a ‘genius loci’ or ‘sense of place’.

I particularly like to work with texture and often use pastes and sometimes apply gold leaf. I almost always use reflective paints in the work to capture and reflect the light. I will usually combine the use of palette knife and soften this with brush work. I remain inspired by the enduring impressionist masters: Turner, Klimt, Monet, Cezanne, Matisse, Pissaro and also the more contemporary Landscape artists Mackintosh, Hitchens, Manrique, Heron, Rae, Iden … and I would describe my paintings as broadly impressionistic.

I am always very pleased to take commissions. If you have an idea in mind for a particular space then please just contact me at pauljbest@aol.com. I would really appreciate any feedback on my work. If you see a painting that you love then please do feel free to make an offer or to message me for any further information. I love to think that people enjoy having the paintings in their homes and this is a big part of the pleasure of offering the work for sale.
