Born in Devon, David Norman is an renowned English watercolourist.
David has had many one-man exhibitions and his paintings are in collections
throughout Europe, America and the Far East.
His watercolours are unashamedly traditional and figurative but are also
underpinned by a strong sense of draughtsmanship, a legacy from a rigorous
training in architectural drawing and rendering. Over the years his palette
has become more and more refined as he tries to simplify and justify his
paintings in terms of tone and atmosphere alone.
David is the author of two books on watercolour painting 'The Complete
Watercolourist' and 'Watercolour, Artists Questions Answered' and is currently
working on a third book, 'Towards Narrative Painting'.
In the month of May 2015, from the 12th to the 15th, David will lead a masterclass at "Aux Délices d'Excideuil"
a guest house nestled in the heart of the medieval town of Excideuil in
the Périgord vert. Come and share the warm and cosy atmosphere and learn
or improve the technique of watercolours under David's guidance.
