About

About the artist.

David Paton is an Irish Artist specialising in landscapes and equestrian subjects. Based in Co. Meath, his deep appreciation of everything rural shines through his work in subtle yet vivid ways. Working mainly on location (plein aer) he feels he is better able to capture the changing light along with the fleeting moments that occur right in front of his eyes.

David attended the  National College of Art and Design and graduated from the from the DIT College of Marketing and Design in 1987 in visual communication. After graduating he spent over 25 years running Paragon Design, his own successful Advertising and Design consultancy in Dublin. However, David’s first love has always been painting and so in 2018 he decided to take up the craft on a full time basis. David has been exhibited in many group collections, with many pieces being held in private collections both in Ireland the U.K. and much further afield.

Although oils are his main medium, David has also mastered many other mark making techniques such as water colours, ink illustration, and the use of palette knives, often using his impasto technique to capture a scene more spontaneously so that it can be work upon later in his studio. His skill as a draftsman is very apparent in all his work, as he believes it is the foundation stone of his painting and illustration process.
