The retail trade might have beckoned in those early years for the now critically acclaimed contemporary landscape artist, however it was the latter talent which eventually came calling and from which he’s carved out an enviable career ever since. Yet it might never have happened were it not for Coulson’s father – and artist in his own right – challenging his gifted son to renew his dormant interest in art courtesy of imitating some Victorian landscape paintings taken from old Sotheby’s catalogues. 14 years on from that, Coulson had accumulated a fine body of landscape art to his name, enough to bite the bullet and turn professional. As of the summer of 2017 the best-selling Coulson’s giclee mounted limited editions go from strength to strength in terms of dramatic quality and enduring appeal, as the revealing of his very latest collection visually testifies. ‘The Gift of Time’ is chief amongst these much-anticipated new hand-signed releases, and can be order with immediate effect. This 150-run only beach horizon iteration is pure Coulson from intense palette to sweeping vista and are therefore expecting a volume of interest from the outset.
