In his landscapes, David Welsh concentrates on the effect of light on fields, buildings, water, and above all on the sky: sunlit clouds, blazing blue heat, menacing storms and cold English winters. His portraits of people and animals are powerful, lifelike and full of character.
Biography: David Welsh was born in Derbyshire (1937), and educated at Eton and Cambridge. Now retired, his main career has been as a teacher, but painting has never been far behind, especially in the last ten years. He enjoys portrait painting as well as landscape work where his specialities are the effect of light, often on water, and interesting and dramatic clouds and skies. He has always worked in oils, a medium that he finds very suitable for all the effexts he wants to achieve. He has held annual one-man exhibitions of his paintings for the last ten years, as well as having his paintings displayed in several London and provincial galleries from time to time.
