Later he changed direction to the study of traditional painting and printmaking methods at the old Hornsey College of Art under Jesse Cast, Norman Janes and Henry Holzer.

Between 1953 and 1957 he taught at several London colleges of art and for the next twenty-four years full-time in the ceramic section of Carlisle College of Art and the Bath Academy.  In 1981, he left teaching in order to return to his own work and has since held many exhibitions in galleries at Bath, Henley-on-Thames, Rye, Aldeburgh, Snape, Heffers in Cambridge and the Wigmore Hall in London.  In earlier years in London, he had exhibited at the Royal Academy, the Royal Watercolour Society, the Painter-Etchers and the Leicester Galleries.

During his years of full-time teaching, David published a number of practical books on pottery and wood sculpture through Faber and Faber, Gollancz and other companies in the USA and Holland.

 

More recently he has embarked upon publishing limited editions under his own imprint - Greensprings Press, Woodbridge - commencing with SUFFOLK ESTUARIES (1998) which reveals his delight in the local scenery, and AT THE WATER'S EDGE (1999) which takes a closer look at the colour, pattern and form of small boats, etc.

A well-known collection of greetings cards and facsimile prints of David's watercolours has been printed by The Five Castles Press over the last eight years.

David came to live in East Anglia from the West Country in 1990.
