David Moore is an Australian painter living and working in Castlemaine in Central Victoria. Still life and landscape are his preferred subjects, and his chosen medium is oil paint on linen or cedar wood panel, and gouache on paper.
David has been painting since he was 11 years old. As a child, he would sit alongside his father’s easel at their home in Croydon, Melbourne, and be instructed in the painting techniques of tonal realism.
In 1970, David was awarded the Alice M. E. Bale scholarship, which afforded him a studio and use of a house, with a few bills paid. He was assigned two painting mentors, Sir William Dargie CBE and Harley Griffiths. The latter, his preferred mentor, was chief restorer at the National Gallery of Victoria. He took David behind the scenes to see The Banquet of Cleopatra, the enormous eighteenth-century Giovanni Battista Tiepolo painting, as it was being restored. For David, it was an exciting glimpse of art history being made and preserved, and reinforced for the aspiring painter that some people value painting highly indeed!
