David Morris studied at the Slade School of Art London 1959-1961 where his tutor was Keith Vaughan. His work follows in the tradition of English landscape painting and printmaking and is firmly rooted in observation. David has exhibited widely including New Light. Royal Scottish Academy, The RA, and Discerning Eye at the Mall Gallery. His work is included in the House of Lords Works of Art Collection.
Andrew works in the tradition of En plein air working from observation outdoors in the field, studying different times of day and weather conditions. Drawing is central to Andrew’s work and in 2019 he was awarded the Richard Ford Award, Prado Residency, by The Prince’s Drawing School, London which allowed him to develop his drawing whilst gaining a great insight into works in the Prada Museum in Milan.
More recently in 2015 he has received 2nd place in the Windsor and Newton Award at the Mall Galleries Royal Institute of Oil Painters annual Exhibition.
