David Whitlam artworks
David Whitlam is a fine artist/illustrator from Manchester. From an early age he showed a flair for drawing and signs of a vivid imagination. Most of David’s pictures start with loose sketches, done directly from his imagination. These spontaneous doodles are then gradually refined into detailed drawings which then form the starting point for digital images or oil paintings. His digital work is based on scans of pencil drawings which are built up in Adobe Photoshop with opaque layers of color and texture so that the original image shows through underneath, thus retaining the appearance of ‘traditional’ art. His paintings are usually in oils on canvas.Religious and mythological symbolism features in much of his work, combined with an eclectic mixture of everyday objects, and more abstract forms.
