David Hawthorne David Hawthorne studied fine art at Berkshire College of Art and University College of Wales, Aberystwyth.

He exhibits regularly with the Royal West of England Academy, Bristol, and the Mall Galleries, London, and is represented by the Darryl Nantais Gallery and Linton59.

He has won a number of awards including the prestigious Charles Pears Award from the Royal Society of Marine Artists and is an elected member of the Royal Birmingham Society of Artists.

An abstract impressionist of outdoor scenes, both urban and rural, David uses colour and tone to evoke the atmosphere and mood associated with a place and time of day. The paintings have an abstract quality but often retain representational elements. David's use of a subtle range of similar colour tones in his paintings creates a calm and restful feeling.
