David AtkinsPainter David Atkins was born in Greenwich in 1964. He studied at both St Martin’s School of Art, London and later at Winchester School of Art.

He says of his work, “The tradition of landscape painting has always been at the heart of my drawing and painting. I work directly from the environment often revisiting places many times and in ever changing weather and seasons. My paintings are concerned with capturing light, wind, rain and colour and I always try to encapsulate in them an essence of what is experienced and discovered. They are produced with vigour and intuitiveness, allowing the process of working and reworking to consolidate a truthful response to the subject.”

1.Lyme Regis 24x30 in David AtkinsArt critic Brian Sewell: “Today David Atkins has established himself as an evocative painter of landscapes and urban scenes. His use of broad brush and colour creates bold and clear vistas of the city and landscape. He is particularly drawn to scenes of dawn and sunset and is an honest observer of the world around us. David is an artist who excels at capturing the magic and majesty of the British countryside. His strong and confident brushwork successfully records the essence of his subjects be they landscape or urban cityscapes”.
