Autumn on The Quantocks Summary

18" x 14"    Framed   



David Jessup sold his first picture - a small scraperboard drawing - aged 14.

Years later, David took time out from his job as a production controller at the Clarks factory in Minehead - unable to stand or walk after an operation, he picked up his oil paints once more. When the factory closed in 1982, David and his family moved to a remote miners cottage where they established the family business Brendon Hill Crafts, combining his wife Lizs preserves and his own artwork.

David prefers to produce large oil paintings on medium grain stretched canvas, making use of sheer magnitude to transport the viewer to the scene.  Referring to compositional sketches captured on site, David works in his home studio.

In his alter ego as an illustrator, David also turns to nature as a subject, producing watercolours and drawings for postcards and prints for clients like the National Trust and The Lost Gardens of Heligan.
