From his earliest days drawing held his interest rather than sports like most boys and that still is true today. Life drawing introduced David to other like minded artist and that lead to painting outdoors, ‘en plein air’. The challenge of drawing and painting from life remains David’s preferred way to work. Photographs are of course part of studio painting, but it can lead to overworking the painting, loosing that spontaneous and freshness that comes naturally when painting from life. A plein air piece can end up as a finished piece or reference for a studio painting.
David’s paintings do not fall into any single category and he likes to paint almost anything from the portrait, the human figure, animals and birds, still life and of course landscapes. Marketing this variety of subjects has its own set of challenges although he has had success selling various genre galleries and privately. David still pursues his work with dedication, passion and enthusiasm.
