David Porteous-Butler Paintings
David Porteous-Butler’s work reveals an honest and direct affinity with his subject that is driven by his love of the natural world. He has a passion for the vitality of the landscape and changing light around him. Suffolk provides much inspiration and the English countryside is a true love, although he has also worked extensively in Southern Europe including time in France and Italy. Working with a limited palette, he is always faithful to the truth in what he sees.His portraits reveal the same integrity, and his sculptures, whether in bronze, stone or marble, are faithful to his belief in a natural and simple beauty in all things. David studied in London under Sir Kyffin Williams RA and Anthony Green RA before being offered a place at the Royal College of Art. David is truly a protégé of, and remains close to, Sir Kyffin Williams RA and shares his fundamental belief that drawing and draughtsmanship are a vital part of the artist’s craft. David’s work is in collections in the UK, France, Italy and the USA.
