David Thompson’s exhibition in Park’s Cafe

Park’s Cafe in the centre of Droitwich Spa is a place for the new exhibition of DAN member David Thompson.
Although David studied Textile Design at the South East Essex Art School and the Royal College of Art, in London, he did not start painting pictures until quite recently. He took numerous painting expeditions around Midlands and Wales, but also in distant lands such as France, Spain, Ireland, Australia and New Zealand. He enjoys trying to analyse and capture the variations in character of the landscape and the architecture and the qualities of light in these differing locations.
