c.1923 - ?

David R. Marshall, grew up at Walton-on-the-Naze, Essex from where he developed a passion for the seashore, the cliffs, the beach, the tidal mudflats and the winding sea beneath the skies. When he left the coast he incorporated sand, pebbles, straw and saw-dust to recreate its textures. Summer expeditions to Suffolk took him to Shingle Street, Bawdsey and Orford with a sketching easel and paints, resulting in on the spot sketches which he later worked on in his studio. In recent times aspects of the Essex/Suffolk borders have become appealing with the landscapes of open fields and skies have been transferred to his canvas. A member of the Colchester Art Society, he exhibited from 5 The Street, Frinton-on-Sea at 'Visions of Sudbury' at St Peter's Church in 2009 an oil 'Down on the River'
