Colin Steed

Colin is a self-taught artist painting in watercolour and Acrylic using traditional materials and techniques. He has studied watercolour all his adult life and has been teaching and exhibiting paintings for over twenty-five years, turning professional in 1998 after spending 22 years in engineering.


His love of the countryside comes from his childhood days in rural Essex. East Anglian Landscape are his passion but also paints on his travels in the UK as well as France and Spain where he has been the principle tutor for painting holiday companies.


He gives demonstrations to clubs and societies, has tutored for the FSC at Flatford Mill and is regular contributor to ‘Leisure Painter’ magazine. He has paintings in collection in this country and abroad and has illustrations in the Hylands House History and Guide booklet.


Colin is also teaching workshops at the Wonky Wheel gallery in 2020. See our events page for more information.

Colin works from his small garden studio in Galleywood, Essex where he is always happy to talk about and show you his work.

Some of Colin's paintings are stocked in our gallery in Finchingfield and a selection can also be bought online below.
