David Lopez Panea
Since 2004 David Lopez Panea has been principally painting landscapes, using a range of techniques. He has concentrated on various Southern Spanish landscapes, principally those of Cabo de Gata, Almeria and the sierra de Grazalema, exploring these rich and diverse environments through oil on canvas, drawings using graphite, ink and pencil ,watercolors and photography. This current series of works are more intimate explorations of these local environments, first through photography and then exploring these in the studio through drawings, final translating the images onto canvas, His work is very intense and multilayered the deceptive simplicity of the final work is created by a masterfull understaning of material and colour.
