THE ISLAND by Colin Ruffell



"THE ISLAND in the West Country was inspired by the splendid St Michael's Mount. That island can be seen from Mousehole, Newlyn, Penzance,and Marazion. At low tide you can even walk out to it from Marazion." CR


THE ISLAND by Colin Ruffell.

Signed and numbered Fine-art print

THE ISLAND is one of the holiday memory pictures from my portfolio of giclee fine-art prints.

The style of painting is called ‘cloisonnism’ where the areas of colour are surrounded by black lines. The term was coined in post-impressionist France in 1888. I adopted the technique after watching my kids paint. And children’s art has inspired the way that I distort perspective. It is an interesting picture-language and great fun to paint.

First I create the original painting then I scan the image to make a digital file. We own a wide format Epson giclee printer meaning that I can print-on-demand to the highest international standards providing a valuable investment for your fine-art collection.
