Australia and a recognized watercolorist artist
David Taylor (A.W.I. F.V.A.S) was born in Melbourne, Australia in 1941 and at present he lives in the Victoria countryside to the southeast of Melbourne.
David painting career expands many years of studying the watercolor painting art and he teaches his love of the medium to painters in Australia and overseas since the late sixties. You can imagine how many watercolorists evolved from him. You can find the workshops schedule in his website to find the more convenient to you in Australia, Eurpe or US. An additional option you have is to buy one of his instructional DVD’s “Solving the Mystery of Watercolour”.
David Taylor loves to work on location and his artworks show his love for spontaneity, shape, light and color.
He obtained numerous achievements including more than 100 important awards, and in 1989 the Distinguished Leadership Award for outstanding service to Watercolour and Teaching from the International Directory of Distinguished Leadership, and also a certificate of merit for the distinguished service to the community, that tells a lot about David Taylor work with and for watercolor.
In 2010 David Taylor was the Australian representative of a five countries judging panel for the Shanghai International Watercolour Biennial and at present two of his works are part of the National Collection in China.

David tells us “The filtered sunlight creates some magic moments that were waiting briefly to record. The Australian Landscape and its beauty .How Wonderful the Country Glows in Summer”
“Perhaps I will say that in this painting I was inspired by the Scale and Movement of the scene before me.
It was like a theatrical moment and alive with action. How I really love this Part of Italy and will be there again Next Year as a
Tutor for the International Artist 30Sept – 12 Oct
