Foss Fine Art in association with Heartbreak Publishing has published a series of limited edition giclee prints.
David Brayne RWS was born in 1954 and studied at Nottingham School of Art, Gloucestershire College of Art and Exeter University. He exhibits regularly at the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition and has been awarded many notable prizes. He was elected to the Royal Watercolour Society in 2001 and recently curated the Poet and The Painter exhibition at Bankside Gallery on London’s South Bank.
There is a poetry of perception expressed in David Brayne’s work. His surfaces are chalky dry, reminiscent of early Renaissance frescoes, his colours, while subtly English invariably have a warm vibrant ochre singing out: creating a perfect harmonious palette. He often draws on the wide skies and expansive seas of his Fenland childhood and the hills and coasts of the West Country where he has lived for many years. Landscapes and interiors are both imagined and remembered, figures dissolve into light, land and sea appear blended together in a gentle linear exchange, a lyrical memory.
David Brayne mixes his own paint from raw pigments, building up layers of luminous glazes, sometimes working into the surface with pastel and using touches of gold and silver leaf.
