A large proportion of David's early working life was spent in the magnificent landscapes of the Cumbrian and Peak national parks. From these early days he developed a real love for the peace and beauty of these places. David's paintings are produced in response to frequent walks through these wild and often bleak open spaces. His paintings are an attempt to capture some of the light and freshness of nature through a thoughtful use of colour and tone. The paintings are made using oil paint on canvas. The early stages of a painting progress quickly with rapid brush strokes applied very loosely to the canvas to sketch in the major features of the composition. A tonal under painting is built upon these initial marks and this is followed by the application of the major colours combinations. Final adjustments to colours and compositional elements are then made to complete the painting. Wherever appropriate David tries to retain as much of the initial 'sketch' phase in the final work, as it's often this stage that gives the paintings their vibrancy. David loves paintings that can hold the viewers attention with their rich colours or carefully placed details. Paintings that don't rely on bold tricks, but those that seem to be filled with the care, love and patience that the artist gave to them. This is what he aims for when making his art. David is building reputation as a respected landscape artist and his work is hanging in collections around the world.. Selling online is a new venture for him and he's very excited about the possibilities that this offers. Some of David's works are currently on exhibition at Malvern Theatres but delivery would still be within 5 days. As well as the original paintings, David's work is also available in the form of signed, limited edition giclée prints, usually produced in editions of 100. These prints are made using lightfast pigments on archival paper and are available either mounted and backed or unmounted. If you'd like to commission a painting please contact David directly.

A beautiful work: we saw it on display at Malvern Theatres and were very taken with it. It's a very pleasing and tranquil work - we're extremely happy we had the opportunity to purchase it.
