David Brooks

Dave was born in Motueka, brought up in Nelson, but has spent the last 40 years in Dunedin. He is a self taught artist who has been painting entirely by brush for 20 years in oils and acrylics. Dave specialises in dramatic and moody sunsets and sunrises, blending their brilliant colours and sharply contrasting shades. Painting from photographs mainly of the Otago region.

"A trip down to Otago as a 13 year old, Christmas 69-70 left an indelible impression on my senses, enough to draw me back later to Dunedin to live, marry a local girl and begin painting the wonderful scenery of coastal and central Otago".

43 years as a printer has given Dave an extensive knowledge and understanding of colours, how to get the most benefit from mixes and how to play one colour off against surrounding colours to get contrasts, which are so relevant in sunsets and sunrises.
