David Porteous-Butler’s work reveals an honest and direct affinity with his subject that is driven by his love of the natural world. He has a passion for the vitality of the landscape and changing light around him. Suffolk provides much inspiration and the English countryside is a true love, although he has also worked extensively in Southern Europe including time in France and Italy.
Working with a limited palette, he is always faithful to the truth in what he sees. David studied in London under the late Sir Kyffin Williams RA and Anthony Green RA before being offered a place at the Royal College of Art. David’s work is in collections in the UK, France, Italy and the USA. In 2012 David was privileged to be one of twenty artists invited by the BBC to the Millennium Bridge on the day of the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee pageant to paint the scene on the river.
