Background and influences
David Morrison is an established West coast painter from Ardentinny, Argyll. He was born in Falkirk in 1958 and moved to Argyll in the 70s were he worked with boats in a family business for seven years. He then attended Langside College, Glasgow, for a year before gaining a place at Duncan of Jordanstone college of art, Dundee, graduating in 1989 with BA(hons) in fine art.

David paints mostly landscape, seascape and maritime subjects in figurative and semi abstract form using the mediums of oil, pastel and ink and gouache. Argyll and the Clyde are his main inspirations for his work and occasionally Fife and the fishing villages. His works explore the effects of light and tone using brush and palette knife with contrasts and harmonies of colour and surface. His works are fresh and not overworked. He traces his love of paint back to his studies of Hornel who was renowned for using his impasto technique.

David frequently exhibits in group and solo shows throughout Scotland.

Most notably in the Roger Billcliffe Gallery, Glasgow which has shown his work in seasonal shows since 1993 and recently in the group show “5 Five” in September.

Limited edition prints of his work are published by the Di Rollo Gallery

His work has appeared in the magazines, Uptown, Coast, Homes and Interiors Scotland, Home Plus, Scotland Gallery Guide.
