Painting in pure watercolour medium, David Poxon uses a painstaking multi glazing technique. His paintings sometimes have up to 20 layers of transparent paint, each in turn delicately modulating the colours beneath.
There is no white paint used at all in any of his works. David prefers instead to preserve areas of the natural paper, and his paintings can take many weeks in the making.
A recurring theme in his work is the reclamation by nature of that which man has created and abandoned, finding renewed life between object and environment.
