Original Oil on Board
Deep down David always knew what he wanted to do for a living. "In my school years I remember my Dad teaching me some basic elements of drawing using light and shade in pencils and dreamed of one day becoming an artist." Being only really interested in art David left school and studied Graphic Design at Southport college after which he found work and started at a local art gallery as a picture framer. Needing to support his young family he worked in the art and picture framing industry for twelve years but also managed to paint part time producing mainly private commissions for people at the same time developing new techniques and ideas. Although David enjoyed his job he knew that this was not the life he really wanted and he eventually decided it was time to follow his dreams and with the support of his wife and two children he took the plunge, leaving his job to concentrate on painting full time.
Each painting is sympathetically framed ready for hanging. The Northern Romance Originals series, featuring Ted and Dorris are hugely popular. Painted using oil on board.
