Dave Pringle online
...Thank you for popping by to view the dynamic emotiv art of Dave Pringle. On this site you can find images of the latest illustrations as well as the latest news and information on upcoming events and artwork.
Portraits are a driving force be it animal or human. I aim to represent each subject in their raw beauty , capturing both their spirit as well as visual likeness. A successful portrait contains a very real part of the subject, their true essence. That said my most successful paintings are those that originate as a mental image first, transferring through initial sketches, I develop the composition and colour balance, then I move to the main piece and just follow my instincts. I sit and let the art flow - I'm in 'The Zone' and this is where the true art is realised. It's almost like being possessed as the artwork develops before my eyes, it's fantastic. Each year it gets even more exciting and fun.
Pastels are my chosen medium these days. The immediacy and gentle flow of gradients and colour allow my instincts to drive the artwork. Pastel being almost pure pigment mean the images are vivid and full of life and the original will last for centuries.
I strive to create a detailed and honest representation while meeting both compositional and easthetic needs with a touch of the subjects personality and spirit. When I've met these objectives I know I'll have an illustration I can be proud of and more importantly one, you, the client will cherish for a lifetime.
The full effect is somewhat dulled with online images - but please contact the studio if you wish to know where artwork can be seen in the flesh.
