The Coming of the Steamer Age 75 x 50cm

David is a third generation artist who has a wealth of experience in graphic art, with its beginnings in litho transfer stones to make apple case labels, zinc plates for railway posters and the development of the famous “glass and a half” slogan and image for Cadbury’s for which he was responsible.  He has produced philatelic material including postage stamps and has had many other achievements as writer and illustrator.  David's affection for Tasmania is shown in his watercolour paintings of its best loved villages, towns, landscapes and of its native flora and fauna.  However, his favourite subject matter is fishing boats at their mooring and so he produces many paintings of boats.  With painting and illustration flourishing and the occasional industrial commission, he is kept busy.  Along with new scenes, the broad range of subjects he has to illustrate and paint is unending and he welcomes a challenge.
