Daniel Cole

Dan Cole’s background and training in Scientific Illustration have lent his landscape paintings an informed sensitivity to the natural world. Having observed and sketched wild birds from an early age, Cole has harmonised the discipline of biological illustration with his own experimentation in painterly abstraction. Predominantly oil on board, Cole’s landscapes - sublime in their attention to natural detail yet eye-catching in their experimentation with line and colour - bridge an often elusive gap between the real and the fantastical.
