Hello. I'm Daryl Lex Price, A Devonport Artist.
My art history
I have always painted, the last twenty five years fulltime. Thick paint, influenced by the 'impressionists' seems to be from where my style has evolved over the years.
The effects of light are endlessly fascinating to me and one day I'll get it right. Although some people think that it is pretty good now having purchased several of my works each.
Although I paint full time, the amount of paintings I produce couldn't be described as prolific, I am driven to produce the best I can at the time with the desire and aim to put something special into each work.
I have participated in many NZ art exhibitions, and have received good comment and the occasional award for my work. The biggest award though is when someone decides they would like to buy a painting.
Framing and delivery
All my oil paintings are unframed. Framing is about the personal touch its new owner can add to suit the painting and the room. If you require a frame I can help with this.
My New Zealand fine art oil paintings on canvas or linen are available Ex my artistÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s studio in Devonport or I will carefully package and ship anywhere as I have done for many satisfied purchasers.
First time buyer or viewer
A first time buyer or viewer at my NZ Art gallery? MAKE AN OFFER on a painting, ask questions. I am happy to assist and negotiate a price for you.
Do you have a favourite photograph, of a scene or person? Classical or impressionistic style, allow me to paint in oils, your vision. It won't be a 'flat' looking copy but something by the artist, that has a life of its own. No obligation to buy the final work if you don't like it!
