About the Artist

David K Hoque


     I am a professional fine artist who specializes in rendering realistic art pieces in colored pencil, graphite and watercolor. I was borne in Monterey, California on April 8th, 1961 and grew up in a military family.  I was first formally recognized for my talent at the age of 16 when I received a National Golden Key Award for a block print I did while in middle school while my family was stationed in Hawaii.

     I’m primarily a self-taught artist but have formal training in advanced art classes I took in high school. I also received formal training with internationally recognized artists such as Cynthia Knox, David Jamieson and Gemma Seufferlein Gylling.  Some of my favorite artists growing up were Andrew Wyeth, Thomas Hart Benton, Frank Frazetta, and Rembrandt. I also enjoy studies in hyper-realism by Emanuele Dascanio and other superb colored pencil work by artists such as Cecile Baird. I enjoy all art produced at any skill level as long as it’s produced from the heart.  Although I enjoy the study of realism in art, I also enjoy abstract art and impressionism.  

     I served this country in the US Army for 21 years and retired honorably in 2000. I have lived in and traveled to many countries and have gained a unique perspective as it applies to my art.  Since then I have enjoyed a personal artistic renascence and have won awards in several exhibitions with the Fusion Art Gallery, the Light, Space and Time Art Gallery, and Colors of Humanity Art Gallery. I also have had several pieces published in Ann Kullberg’s monthly colored pencil magazine “Color” and had a piece published (with narrative) in her “CP Treasures Vol IV” colored pencil book. I’ve had a watercolor piece published on the cover of the 2nd Armor Cavalry Regiment’s “Thoroughbred” magazine and have a tutorial being published in “Color Pencil Magazine” in the Spring of 2017. I am also a member of the Colored Pencil Society of America and had a piece juried-in to show at their annual prestigious colored pencil exhibition in 2016, the first year I joined as a member earlier that same year.   

     Although I do some human and pet portraiture on commission, I primarily enjoy exploring and studying my own subjects in my artistic journey.  I also sometimes donate pieces to worthy causes or people in need or suffering hardship. I consider my talent a gift from God and it’s my way of giving back to honor that gift.

     My ambitions include becoming a signature member in the CPSA and continuing to work on becoming a nationally recognized master in my primary medium of colored pencil. I am also interested in becoming a member in the “International Guild of Realism”.  I enjoy the study of producing pieces that push colored pencil to its limits in realism.  My approach is to master the technical skills required to produce realistic art pieces while choosing interesting subjects, and applying dramatic hue, contrasts in tone, and dimension. Combining and applying these skills and tenets has allowed me to render pieces that are thought provoking and interesting as well as technically accurate and realistic. I have a heavy hand and draw in bold but precise contours and rich hues. I also study subjects exploring the interesting contrasts between light and dark tones, as well as  studying and creating pieces with reflection, still life, the animal world and human portraiture as my prime subjects.  

     I am currently a magistrate and work for the Commonwealth of Virginia and plan to work in that occupation for at least 8 more years. After I retire my wife Lorie and I plan to dedicate the rest of our lives to our granddaughter Josie, travel and to share my personal study of colored pencil and watercolor with the world.
