The Masterful Coloured Pencil Art Portfolio of David Neace

Masterful coloured pencil artist David Neace taught himself to draw at a young age by following along with his father, also an artist. David’s current body of work reflects a sense of careful, practiced observation as well as an appreciation for pure experimentation with an artistic medium.

I really love the way that Neace renders reflective surfaces -- polished cars, chrome hood ornaments, and water all factor heavily into the artist’s portfolio, and just taking a closer look at these images reveals the artist’s intimate, fundamental understanding of the formal elements of these difficult-to-capture textures.

The artist is also quite talented with other media, like ink and acrylic paint. David’s acrylic paintings take a softly-blended, detailed route to depicting fantastic, cosmic landscapes and subject matter, while the artist’s ink wash paintings are more subdued and abstracted. There’s a sense of atmospheric depth in both these series that underpins the artist’s entire portfolio.
