Art Exhibition at the VIC
October 1, 2019 @ 10:00 am - October 31, 2019 @ 4:30 pm
The month of September the Cochrane Information Centre will be showcasing a Photography Exhibit by Colin Wallace. In his teen years, he began painting the natural world around him in the rolling countryside of northern England and Scotland. His interest at the time was highly detailed pen/ink and watercolour renditions of insects, plants and local wildlife. After moving to Canada his interest shifted to landscape and farmscape paintings before turning to digital art (graphic design, digital illustration and web design).
A resident of Cochrane since 2011, Colin has returned to watercolour painting with an emphasis on local mountain views. As an avid hiker and climber, Colin sketches from trails and roadsides, then working from his own photographs he attempts to accurately capture not just the shape, but the mood, the colour and the feel of the mountains that will be familiar to those who share Colin’s love of the Canadian Rocky Mountains.
