Dave’s art style is well-suited to his subject matter. The artist really has a knack for rendering the shine of chrome metal car and motorcycle components in a way that looks polished yet very true-to-life. The images included in our last feature of Dave’s photorealistic portraits and drawings showcase this effect. His drawing style emphasizes his respect for the subject matter.
