We bought these two fabulous paintings at auction recently.
They’re interior scenes with a very distinctive style. Our attention was grabbed from across the large saleroom.
The items in these room settings don’t scream 1960s/70s, but the style of painting somehow does.
The artist is Colin Ruffell. Born in 1939, he has been a professional artist for nearly 50 years and has exhibited all over the world.
We love the composition, colour & tones of these works…
…also the textural quality with the bold application of paint.
Don’t you just love the bottle & glass – or the plates on the dresser?
We’re still drawn to his still lives with their naive style, but also love his impressionist depictions of London & Brighton.
