David R Newens
My primary inspiration continues to be the paintings of Vermeer
My paintings are almost always oil on linen on board. I prefer the firm base which also has the advantage of being very stable and robust. Only very large paintings are on stretched canvas.
Date of Birth: 04/03/1945 Training: Part time Glasgow School of Art For many years combined painting with a career in engineering management and subsequently property development. Progressively made more time available to be able to concentrate on painting.
