Earlier Works - 1992 to c2000

The paintings under earlier works range in date from 1992 to c 2000 and represent Colette's first oil paintings, the earliest
being the kookaburra study and ' Conkwell Grange ' Mare and Foal  featured above.

That painting was made during the summer of 1992 in the beautiful English county of Wiltshire, my fifth completed painting.
It was an epic undertaking at the time, I laid the background colour on in oils and made a detailed drawing on top and sealed it,
and then for weeks I was too terrified to start painting! I mucked around with another small painting, and eventually I began
and it took 5 or 6 weeks to complete the horses.  I was then faced with the somewhat daunting prospect of cutting in a different background colour around them, and was enormously relieved when it was suggested that they looked very well against the original under-painting colour and there was nothing to be gained by going any further!
