David Parfitt RI
David lives near Bath. He is a landscape painter, working with Watercolours and water-based media. He was elected a member of The Royal Institute of Painters in Water colours in 2011 and won the Neil Meacher RI sketchbook award in 2012.

I am passionate about watercolour, with its fluidity and uncontrollable nature; finding how the medium can be used to express and convey a feeling for the moods and atmosphere of my local landscape. The Mendip Hills and Wetlands, near to my home in Somerset, are the inspiration for the vast majority of my work and painting outdoors most of the time allows me to connect to it as I strive to achieve a feeling for the sense of place.

Artists’ General Benevolent Institution (AGBI)
The Artists’ General Benevolent Institution is a registered charity (No. 212667) and has been in existence for over 190 years. It was founded in 1814 by J.M.W. Turner and the original rule remains true today where the object of the AGBI is to assist professional artists living in England, Wales and Northern Ireland, their widows and dependants, who through accident, illness or old age are unable to work or earn.

In 2012/2013 I was the RI’s Steward for the AGBI and, as part of my stewardship role I sold a number of small mounted works with proceeds donated to the AGBI. Although I am no longer the RI Steward, I am continuing to sell these small mounted paintings. Please contact me for more details or for more information about the AGBI www.agbi.co.uk
