David Weston Hon Ret RMS HS BSM BWS MASF MPSG FRSA
David’s principal concerns are to portray the immensity of the landscape, its atmosphere, light, colour and texture, and the ‘treatment’ of its edges. He works between direct response and imagination to produce landscapes and seascapes.
There is an intention to evoke a feeling of place.

He has also exhibited with the Royal Institute, The New English Art Club, The Royal Society of British Artists, The Royal Society of Marine Artists, and The National Society.
