David’s architectural training provided a grounding in many of the aspects that now influence his painting – a simplicity of means and an inherent understanding of perspective, composition, color and the play of light.

“I’ve always sketched and painted to see the world around me more clearly.  Focusing on a subject while painting brings details to life that are normally lost in the visual cacophony bombarding us on a daily basis.  Watercolor allows me to explore these details while at the same time requiring an immediacy that results in a more expressive interpretation of their form and quality.”

The process of watercolor builds from a layering of washes working from lights to darks. View in Grant Park, Chicago.
