David Howell is an English painter working from a studio in North Yorkshire, UK.  His  paintings are primarily of landscape and marine subjects, but he  is also well known for his Equestrian racing pictures and his work in the Middle East where he lived for many years.  A full time professional painter for over 30 years, David works in watercolour, oils and pastels, and is a regular exhibitor at both national level and with regional galleries both in the UK and overseas and is a Past President of the Royal Society of Marine Artists and also an honoury member of the Pure Watercolour Society.

David's approach to painting is very much concerned with capturing atmosphere  and a sense of time and place but above all he is concerned with producing good paintings rather than topographical accuracy.  He works 'en plein air' as much as possible and over the years has travelled widely and is just as likely to be found sitting by a canal in Venice as dragging an easel through the Arabian desert and his paintings hang in corporate and private collections in locations that vary from royal palaces in the Middle east to city boardrooms.
