Watercolor rendering of the mountains at Longs Peak in Colorado by Colorado artist David Newton. Titled #72 “And as we approached the eaves of the wood…” and signed by artist at the back. Double matted and framed in gray wooden frame.
David Newton was exposed to art early in life, growing up next door to a grandmother who painted china and seeing his father turn into a talented woodworking artist over time. Through education Newton explored various art forms – in drawing, painting, sculpture, and jewelry—coming soon to realize his best voice in art as a painter. A third-generation Greeley native, Newton grew up familiar with Colorado’s beautiful scenery all around him. Many of his works have followed this course through both Rocky Mountain and rural landscapes, particularly adding texture into the foregrounds of rocks and trees that make them appear touchably real. Newton’s still life paintings are also noted for their realism. In this lifetime both man and machines have gone to the moon and back, as well as to every other planet in our solar system, capturing real images in astounding detail. These images Newton has come to represent through many large paintings, describing and displaying the majesty of the heavens. Newton has received national recognition for his space paintings which differ from many other space artists, with his basis on real observations rather than fantasy.
