daveDavid Daniels is an accomplished watercolorist who displays a remarkable range of experimentation with the medium and a unique personal sense of composition and color. His impressionistic style gives new freshness to the beauty of nature, and his sense of color is inspired. The influence of his former training as a botanist and biologist are evident and his love and reverence for nature are endemic to his work."
