Themes for David’s paintings often originate from mythology, although interpreted and embellished by his imagination, sometimes the pictures create the feeling of myth or folk-tale although not based on an actual story. There is often something of a humorous or quirky nature about his work. His earlier paintings are oils on either board or canvas. In 1994 he changed to acrylics first on canvas and more recently on paper. During his career David has produced numerous pen and ink drawings and occasionally he works with oil pastels.
