About the Artist



David Billingsley, an Oregon native, started his artistic career doing commissioned drawings
     of automobiles, aircraft, and motorcycles. He now specializes in Still Life, Transportation, and
     Architectural themes in a photorealistic style. He studied oil painting under Eugene Bennett in
     the late 1950's and as a teenager was influenced by automobile designer R. H. Gurr and later
     by Maxfield Parrish and Edward Hopper.

     David strives to achieve a characteristic of his drawings where the closer you look the more
     you see. He continues to explore new ways of defining the detail, reflections and realism.
     The trompe l'oeil genre is very appealing to David because of its challenge and breathtaking
     results that can be achieved.

     He has been juried into the 16th Annual Colored Pencil Society International Exhibition 2008
     in Seattle, WA, the 17th Annual Colored Pencil Society International Exhibition 2009 in
     Atlanta, GA, and the 18th Annual Colored Pencil Society International Exhibition 2010 in Los
     Gatos, CA where he earned Signature status. He won the CPSA District Chapters Award for
     Exceptional Achievement 2010 in Los Gatos, CA.

     David's work has appeared in the "Best of Worldwide Abstract & Still Life Artists"
     Volume 1, 2011.

     David is delighted to be a member of the International Guild of Realism.

     When not doing artwork, David enjoys sculling, traveling, and astronomy.
