David Reynolds



David Reynolds is an award winning Australian watercolour artist. He describes his painting style as ‘Accurate Realism’, always looking to portray botanical and wildlife subjects with a high level of detail. His background in commercial art and graphic design has given him an appreciation of composition and colour.

In the early 2000’s David discovered the intricate detail of botanical art and found the artistic outlet he was looking for. In 2009 David began teaching botanical art and enjoys the wonderful opportunity to share his skills and passion for documenting the natural world with other like-minded people.

David has work represented in the 2018 World Wide Botanical Art Exhibition, The Art of Botanical Illustration exhibition at the Royal Botanic Gardens Melbourne. He received an Honourable Mention Award in the 2022 Celia Rosser Medal, also two Highly Commended Awards through BASA’s exhibitions. David has work represented in the State Botanical Collections of the Royal Botanic Gardens in Melbourne and Sydney, also in private collections in Australia and overseas.
