Artist’s Statement
I love tranquil country scenes, I let my imagination drift away when I do paintings like this. Hopefully the viewer does the same. Is that the sea in the distance, is that a lighthouse?

Imaginary Landscape by David J Ansell

  • David J Ansell was brought up in the northern seaside town of Fleetwood in Lancashire. From a very young age he discovered that he had a natural ability for drawing. Ansell’s influences are the caricature drawings of Arnold Taylor, that he encountered on the postcards that filled the many gift shops along the promenade, and the works of the great Northern artist, L.S. Lowry.
    David J Ansell’s paintings are drawn from memory and imagination and are a wonderful snapshot of a bygone era.
