David Reynolds – Botanical, Natural History and Wildlife Watercolour Artist
David is an award-winning Australian watercolour artist and tutor with the Royal Botanic Gardens Melbourne and Nature in Art Program at Park Orchards. He specialises in Australian flora and fauna, exotic plants and wildlife. He has botanical artwork represented in the Victorian State Botanical Collection of the Royal Botanic Gardens, and in private collections in Australia and overseas.
He describes his style as ‘Accurate Realism’ and is always looking to portray his botanical and wildlife subjects with the most accurate detail possible yet doing it in a ‘painterly’ way honouring the watercolour medium.
David enjoys teaching botanical and natural history art to local, national and international students as well as conducting specialist workshops in regional Victoria and interstate. In May 2018, David had two Banksia paintings represented in the World Wide Botanical Art Exhibition held in Canberra – Banksia integrifolia and Banksia serrata. David received an Honourable Mention Award in the 2022 Celia Rosser Medal.
