A popular Manx artist who taught at the Isle of Man college for 35 years has died in his sleep after a long illness.
Prince Charles owns one of Mr Sayle's works
Norman Sayle passed away on Sunday just days after being awarded the prestigious Tynwald Honour (TH) for his contribution to art and Manx life.
The 80-year-old, who was known both on and off the island, was the first person to ever receive the honour.
Prince Charles owns one of his pieces and the Courtyard Gallery in Tynwald Mills renamed itself The Sayle Gallery.
Mr Sayle, who was granted membership of the Royal Institute of Painters (RI), trained at London Goldsmith's College School of Art from 1948-52 and retired from the Isle of Man College in 1989.
It was only after his retirement that he decided to exhibit outside the island.
In April the Isle of Man produced a set of stamps depicting his work
In 1994 he won the RI Medal for the best painting by a non-member at the Royal Institute of Painters in Water Colours annual exhibition at the Mall Galleries, London.
In the years that followed he won third prize at the Singer & Friedlander/Sunday Times Watercolour Competition no fewer than three times, and in 1997 won the £15,000 first prize.
He once described his work as a homage to the Manx landscape, saying: "My aim is to express my devotion to the Manx countryside - its grey churches, stone circles, slate walls - by reconciling three components: the subject matter, the structure and the medium.
"In the end I want it to look as if the watercolour was speaking for itself."
In April the Isle of Man Post Office showcased his work with a set of eight stamps to mark the year of his 80th birthday.
