David Sullins died recently in August, 2016 and the gallery community will miss him and his fine painting.
Dave was an Oil painter, a Watercolorist, and a Printmaker and actively drew the portrait and human form. His other homes were in British Columbia (Vancouver Island), Canada and La Manzanilla, Mexico. He painted Still Life in Oil using the Chiaroscuro concept– an Old-World style of painting. He was a member of the Taos National Watercolorist Society.
David believed that life-drawing enhances the painting process – he coordinated a life drawing group in the Taos area and combined the drawings of the human figure and various printmaking processes such as chin-colle’ to create monotype prints. He illustrated 2 Children’s books in watercolor - “The Lost Mermaid – A Shem Creek Jamboree” & the sequel “The Lost Mermaid – Return to The Raspberry Kingdom”. The books have won national awards with the Independent Publishers (INDIE).
David’s art education included formal college level courses at the University of New Mexico, the Belles Artes in San Miguel de Allende, Mexico and special workshops at the Fechin Institute with modern-day masters in the Taos area.
“My passion in painting is to create the contrasts and beauty”
dMy slogan is: “FINE ART FOR MANKIND” - my goal is to have anyone that wants it, to have some of my art. -- D Sullins
