David L Curtis Thames painting

David Curtis was born and raised in Doncaster. 
He headed an engineering design team for 
Hawker-Siddely until 1988 when growing 
success as an artist enabled him to give up his 
job and dedicate himself full-time to painting.
David is essentially a plein air painter, working 
in both oils and watercolours. He observes 
transient lighting conditions and the effects of 
atmosphere in his compositions.
He is a member of both the Royal Society of 
Marine Artists and the Royal Institute of Oil 
painters and has exhibited at the Royal 
Academy as well as widely in this country 
and abroad and won numerous awards 
including, in 1992, the prestigious Singer 
Friedlander/Sunday Times Watercolour award. 
In 2008 he was selected as the artist of his 
generation to depict the Changing of the Colour 
Ceremony with HM Queen Elizabeth II.
Always keen to nurture new talent, David has 
published four books of his work with help and 
advice for fellow artists: two on the subject of 
watercolour, and two on oil paintings. He has 
also made six DVD/videos produced by APV
