David's love of the outdoors and Natural History has focused itself through painting and drawing. The work in this book has been completed over the last few years and includes work produced around his home patch of North Yorkshire, as well as during many field trips to other parts of Britain's spectacular landscapes. Experiencing wildlife in its element provides David with an insight which further drives his inquisitiveness and stimulates his need to paint. Sketching and painting outside has fashioned the look of David's work. "Fieldwork makes you see form rather than detail, it encourages a more concise spontaneous approach."
David's work has earned him many prestigious awards and placements on conservation projects in Alaska, Extremadura in Spain, Ireland, Scotland and the New Forest. Cover to cover this book illustrates his creative passion and knowledge for wildlife and the environment.
