Born in 1943, David's work has quickly become highly collected. He has published a number of books, both instructional and anecdotal, on watercolour painting and like his namesake is a keen conservationist. He strives under all conditions to capture the essential ingredients of the elements and sense of place. David is fascinated by the effect of light on the landscape. His use of washes combined with fine detail brings a perspective to his paintings that draw in the viewer. Although he works mainly in watercolour he is just as at home with pastel and oil.
