Yesterday we featured Portrait painting and the art work of portrait painter David Cobley. Today we highlight the portraiture work of another British artists – Simon Davis.

Davis was born in 1968 and studied art illustration and graphic design at Swindon college of Art.

Simon Davis paints thoughtful contemporary oil paintings. His paintings display great sensitivity and skill. Last year his talent was offically recognised at the National Portraits Awards Exhibition where ‘Portrait of Amanda Smith at Vincent Avenue’ won the runner-up prize.This is the most prestigious portrait competition in the world, highlighting the very best in contemporary portrait painting.

His portraits often show carefully observed faces or figures. ‘Portrait of Amanda Smith at Vincent Avenue’ is an example of his individual style. Skilfully using light and shade create texture and depth to the study, he draws our attention, close-up, to her face and expression.

Simon Davis was appointed to the Royal Society of Portrait Painters(RP) and is represented by Red Rag Gallery. In addition to Red Rag Simon Davis art work is also exhibited at other leading British Art Galleries
