He exhibited at the Royal Academy (1967/68) Royal Cambrian Academy, The Mall Galleries, The Maas Gallery, Waterhouse Galleries, National Museum of Wales, Liverpool Academy.
Woodford’s work is the result of enquiry, meticulous drawings and precise plein-air studies on location in all weathers. It also addresses the wild places of Snowdonia in all moods and his portrayal of the subtle lighting and atmosphere of the mountains and vales of Snowdonia has never been matched.
David Woodford is now regarded as one of Britain’s finest landscape painters with over 8000 of his original works in private collections. He works in all mediums, however he has gained greatest acclaim for powerful oil landscapes and exceptional pencil drawings.
David himself stresses the importance of having an excellent grounding in painting and drawing portraiture and still life as an essential means of understanding form and the depiction of light, which once mastered is transferred directly to the essential mechanisms deployed to paint landscape.
