WILLIAM DAVIES (1928 - 2011)
William Davies was born in 1928 and started painting in 1962 after leaving the Royal Navy. Following the Impressionist school Bill painted mostly in the open air, very little work being done in his studio. From the 1970's Bill has made an annual pilgrimage to Venice where he has produced some of his most admired work, the attraction being the renowned light and colour. He also travelled every year to paint in Provence and Brittany and he spoke warmly of the atmosphere that he found there and the friendliness of the French people. He has also painted extensively in Singapore, Indonesia, Australia and New Zealand and he spoke enthusiastically of the time he was permitted to paint in The Royal Academy of Music where he found the challenge of the intense atmosphere of musicians in rehearsal a truly unforgettable experience. Bill Davies was a member of the famous Wapping Group of Artists since 1974 and was President 2003 - 2005. His work has been shown in many important galleries in London and the South East and is in private collections worldwide ists.
