Reknowned Worldwide for his telling depictions of all that is China. David has found fresh inspiration. This life enhancing  collection of colourful paintings of The Middle East is the fruit of his residency at The Majlis Gallery in December 2012 an experience which he describes below

“I was drawn to the  waterways and  quay sides of the Creek, the Souks and bazaars, the elegance of The Al Fahedi Historic Neighbourhood with its sunlit courtyards and dramatic shadows.   Looking down from balconies and from narrow alleyways upon daily tasks being performed with both old buildings and modern architecture as a backdrop."

Elected to the Royal Water Colour Society in 2001, David became Vice-President in 2007, and served as President from 2009 to 2012.
