David Birtwhistle — Painter

Mostly landscape, topographical and architectural watercolours, my work is particularly inspired by Worcestershire, so rich in its variety of geology, agriculture and buildings.

Although many of the subjects of my work will be familiar, I try to find fresh ways of depiction to encourage new interest in and enjoyment from these places.

Investigations of historical architecture, the place of buildings in the landscape and the effects of land use have been favourite themes in my work ever since leaving architectural practice in 1979.
