Nov 2019 – David Purdey

David Purdey will be showing his work for the month of November – he talks about himself here:

I’m a landscape painter and I work from my observation and experience of the actual places I have visited on my travels in the West country, France and Spain.

 All my paintings begin with sketches and drawings and I try to show the world in a new and personal way which involves simplifying the scene to reflect its essence. I try to live inside the landscape, and what excites me is trying to capture reflection, light, shadow and movement.

 I came to painting late and it’s now become one of my greatest pleasures!”
