Artist David Curtis on using a pochade box to paint the local scene in Staithes

It was a pleasant and surprising coincidence that led me to end up painting beside David Curtis in Staithes, Yorkshire. We were both painting in oils using pochade boxes. I was just starting as he had almost finished, and he generously agreed to talk off the cuff to camera on the subject of painting the local scene - and Staithes is clearly a place he has loved for many years.

David's paintings are available in galleries in Staithes and Broadway to my knowledge and here is the link to his website.
