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 sawdust 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'.
