Water colour artist David Webb with his picture at Seaton


Self-taught watercolourist David Webb gave this month’s demonstration to members of Seaton and District Art Society.

After leaving school at 18 he worked as an illustrator for books, magazines and greetings cards, painting mainly small scale and detailed pictures.

But in 2000 he began to create larger, looser, watercolours.

He began his demonstration by showing two versions of a photograph of boats he intended to work from, an original colour version and a black and white one he created which was now much simpler to copy.
