David Renshaw is a passionate painter living a childhood dream of becoming a full-time artist. With a background of dedicated study in painting and graphic design, David paints mood pieces that revolve around attractive sceneries depicting romance and tranquillity, always including adorable love hearts in creative ways. The works exude innocence and dream-like wonder, with a style reminiscent of illustrations from a sophisticated children’s book like The Snowman.
Take, for example, ‘A Winter’s Warm evening’ – two lovers embrace on the snow-swept banks of a lake, gazing upon a backdrop of mountains illuminated by the Northern Lights in a starry night’s sky. There is a clear fascination with the comforting effect of the range of colours we get from the night. The blues and purples of the stars and Aurora Borealis are juxtaposed with mysterious orange glows from the nearby trees. And, of course, there is a love-heart shaped balloon floating above the couple.
Another interesting piece is ‘Evening Gaze’, wherein the same couple stand in a field admiring the sun setting behind a cosy little cottage. Once again, the love-heart balloons are prominent, and once again the twilight colours are exquisite, creating a soothing atmosphere wherever they are displayed. One intriguing thing about David’s work is that the couple depicted is always the same, and are always dressed in the same winter apparel. Even in this painting, which could easily be depicting a scene in the middle of spring or summer.
The romance and tranquillity of David’s work make his paintings tremendous mood pieces. They would fit perfectly in the bedroom or living room, particularly if you have decor that fits well with the darker blue spectrum and enjoy the peaceful tone of twilight colours and soft lighting.
The innocent romance David’s work exudes would make it perfect for couples who appreciate the poetry of life. The scenes in his paintings seem almost alive with a warmth and beauty that imparts a tremendous sense of calm. If this sounds like a dimension you want to bring to your home, then a good browse through the Art Market collection of David Renshaw’s work might give you exactly what you seek.
