David J Porter

David is a self taught painter and most of his subject matter, particularly landscape is often inspired by countryside. He has also produced a series of paintings which reflects periods spent in Europe. His perception of colour and tone gives his work a calm, quiet quality.

 

A great walker, David likes to make small sketches, often in colour, while he is observing the landscape. It is when he returns to his studio that the creative element is added to his work. Drawing on his experience of the landscape he has seen, he begins to compose his painting. He abstracts the unnecessary from the picture and moves shapes and colours around to create a pleasing balance. This style of working results in the semi abstract landscapes that are his forte.
