David Schofield Drawing
Original David Schofield Drawing.
David Schofield, a key west artist, has been drawing for the better part of 40 years. His first subjects were private homes and churches in the Chicago suburb where he grew up, and were an early indication of his strong interest in architecture and built structures. After a brief time studying marine biology in Florida, he took several art classes at the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts and then supported himself selling sketches door-to-door to people who he persuaded that he could draw them or their pets or their homes. He began to develop a more personal and inventive style and in 1979, when he was 21, he had his first solo show in Key West where he had established his studio and where he has lived and drawn ever since. His first New York City show followed 4 years later in 1983. David's earliest large-scale work was of Manhattan cityscapes: entire blocks of classic (and often decaying) brownstones and elaborate cast-iron facades.
