Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. David Whitaker (8 June 1938- 15 March 2007) was a British abstract artist and an art teacher. His works in oils and watercolour are characterised by their use of straight lines of seven colours: two shades of yellow, cadmium red, magenta, viridian, and two shades of blue. His paintings were created in layers, using tape to create straight-sided stencils. The final effect, only revealed when the tape was removed, produced a shimmering graduation of colour from stripe to stripe over the canvass. Whitaker was born in Blackpool. He studied at the Blackpool and the Fylde School of Art for 6 years from the age of 13. He moved to London in the late 1950s, where he began working as a graphic designer. He did not enjoy the work, and left to become a milkman instead. The early hours suited him: his job finished early, and he could spend the rest of the day painting. He married Frances Wood in 1959.
