David was born in 1944 and lives with his wife in the South-West of England. He started painting in oils with a palette knife, at the age of eight. His first picture was a seascape measuring 3.5" x 2.5" which he still has. He paints mainly with a palette knife, continuing in the tradition and style of his late father, George, who for 30 years painted in his studio in Somerset.
Deakins’s style owes much to the texture and consistency of the oil paint he uses. The pictures may change but the style remains distinctly unique. David Deakins enjoys painting both seascapes and landscapes in bold and atmospheric colours, but old sailing boats are his favourite subject, especially in rough seas. After obtaining an MSc. in Marine Biology, David combined his career, teaching biology and painting for galleries and exhibitions.
Deakins has enjoyed outstanding success with his paintings being sold widely throughout the UK and have gone as far as Alaska and Mexico.
