After having many wonderful holidays in Cornwall I was inspired to create a painting of a Cornish scene. I love the way the houses are built into the hillside in many a Cornish village, with their quant little bays and harbours.
The Little Harbour 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.
