Why buy a painting by Colin Woolf?: Colin Woolf - Wildlife Paintings
Why buy a painting by Colin Woolf?
First, a word of explanation:
Colin is not a prolific artist. He produces between 20 and 30 paintings a year, and he steadfastly refuses to speed up his production process. He is totally committed to creating works that he is proud of, believing that any compromise would result in paintings of lower quality, and, of course, lower value. Colin paints what he loves most, and is led by what inspires him: this may appear to be stating the obvious, but unless an artist of any genre follows their own instincts, they cannot hope to produce their best work. This is the ethos behind Colin's creativity. For you as a customer, it means that you will own a painting that Colin has wanted to create, and in terms of artistic quality it will be among his best works.
So, why buy an original painting by Colin Woolf? Well, we hope that your main reason is simple: you love it!

But there are several other good reasons why Colin's wildlife art is a worthwhile purchase.
Firstly, it is a sound investment in terms of monetary value. For example, an original woodcock pin-feather painting has tripled in value over the last four years, despite the recent financial crisis. Few investment accounts can boast the same return, especially in today's market - and, in addition to that, you will have something of beauty to enjoy on a daily basis!
Colin has always insisted on using only the best materials - paints, watercolour paper, mount board and frames - to ensure that his work has the highest standard of permanence. If you take reasonable precautions when hanging your original painting, it will not deteriorate over time. (Please see Page 3 of our Notes and FAQ section for advice on how to care for your painting.)
Unique to you
Your choice of original art says much about you as a person - your tastes, your interests, your personality. Hanging in your home, it is a constant reminder of something that is special to you: a favourite bird or animal, a much-loved landscape, or an atmosphere that you find uplifting and inspiring.
Because of the way we sell, most people who buy original paintings from Colin get to know him as an artist, and perhaps also as a person. Colin rarely places his works in galleries, preferring to meet his clients face to face and discover their unique passions and interests. From talking to Colin, you will gain an insight into his aims, principles and beliefs, and understand a little more about how his paintings are inspired. In fact, many clients whom we have met over the years have become valued friends.
When a work of art is handed down to children and grandchildren it becomes a precious heirloom - not just for its inherent value, but as something that will continue giving pleasure to those who come to own it.
Colin has been a professional artist for over 20 years, and his reputation as a wildlife painter is well established. He has exhibited widely throughout the UK, including The Mall Galleries in London, and his work is collected by art lovers worldwide. You will therefore be buying a painting from someone whose name is already well-known, and whose work will retain - and increase - its value.
Many of Colin's clients possess more than one painting - in fact, some have built up a collection worthy of a sizeable art gallery, and are justly proud of it. But whether you own one original or twenty-three, we believe that your decision to purchase - however impulsive it might feel! - is well-founded.
