David was born in Devon and later moved to Yorkshire, where he now lives. For many years he followed two careers, as an architect and as an artist, but in 1998 took early retirement in order to be able to spend more time painting. His work has appeared in various Yorkshire galleries, and also for several years at the Sadler Street Gallery in Wells. He is a water colourist. David has taken part in the Sunday Times/Singer and Friedlander Watercolour Competition, and his portrait of Morydd, a Welsh farmer, was accepted for the Open Exhibition of the Royal Society of Portrait Painters. At last year’s Patchings Art Festival he received both the Hahnemuhle and the Daler-Rowney award. Many of his paintings have been commissions, both landscapes and portraits (including house portraits).
All the paintings displayed here can be obtained from him as glicee prints.
The painting of Whitby is appearing in the Beverley Open Art exhibition, starting on 8th December and running through till February.
