This inspiring 190 page book with over 150 full colour pages by David Poxon RI, NWS is a collection of work that gives the reader a real insight into how objects and scenes that may be overlooked, or discarded, can produce some stunning artworks when in the hands of a skilled painter like David. Although not a traditional step-by-step tuition guide, there is a full and detailed working practices chapter. David's book does teach a very important lesson - that of seeing the heart and soul of a scene, and indeed, the importance of investing your own emotions into a scenario to bring out the very best aspects in your painting.

Following fascinating forewords and introductions from notable individuals, plus a guide to his personal working practice from David himself, the paintings included in the book focus on the hidden beauty and history found in objects in the abandoned corners of the world around us. Weathered textures and fragile surfaces feature clearly in David's work, as well as scenes and scenarios which tell the story and history of their use - David focusses on the lives behind the images, and works hard to show the social context through his interpretation of an object and subject.

The bold colour David uses is a testament to his passion for not only his subjects, but for the medium he excels in. These are paintings in pure watercolour, luminous and deep resonating colours are achieved through David's mastery of the medium and multi layering application. David captures the hidden aspects and secret lives of objects and places to wonderful effect. If you are looking for some inspiration of how to use watercolours in a new and vibrant way, then this is a book worth investigating with all your heart and soul.
