David Cobley is a painter based in Bath, England. His work hangs in many public and private collections, including that of the National Portrait Gallery. In 1996 he set up Bath Artists’ Studios and still has a studio there, dividing his time between portrait commissions and paintings of the figure.
Whilst major commissions can cost many thousands of pounds and take several months to complete, David also enjoys the challenge of painting portraits like this in just one three-hour sitting. They are painted directly from life in oil on linen and make a unique and memorable gift.
