Artist

Garry Colby
Cumming, Georgia

Garry Colby started painting in 2012 when he retired from a long career in commercial art. Faced with the extra time to pursue what interested him most, Garry choose to paint. His scenes are romantic representations of the everyday, such as the façade of a quaint cottage, a sunny garden, or a rainy street. Besides the tender subject matter, it is his wonderful sense of light that creates the sentimental mood in the work. Soft, filtered light coats the landscapes and buildings, bringing the viewer into the warmth of the scene. The work feels very measured and contemplated, but also full of passion, as if each piece is in pursuit of the joy of painting and the representation of natural beauty.

Comments About This Piece

This piece is on canvas board and will need a frame for display.  

Oil painting

Oil paint uses natural oils, such as linseed, poppy and walnut oil to bind the pigments. Oils are slow to dry, which allows the artist to rework the painting to achieve the desired effect. Also, they blend easily, which helps to achieve certain colors. With the rise of naturalism in 15th century Early Netherlandish painting, oil paints became preferred to quick drying tempera paint. Artists wanted a medium that would allow them to achieve detailed and precise effects in their paintings. Consider all of the detail in the masterpieces of Jan van Eyck and Hieronymus Bosch!

Canvas board

Canvas board is a thin, flat panel of either particle board or cardboard wrapped in canvas. If not already framed, most canvas board work will require framing.

One-of-a-kind

A one-of-a-kind artwork is a unique piece handmade by the artist. There is only one in existence. The work may be part of a series, however, the piece itself is unlike any other. This piece is available exclusively at UGallery.
