A character as colourful as one of his creations, renowned Burnley artist David Wild, has died.

Gifted realist painter Mr Wild was well-known throughout the town and beyond for his skills with a brush and his desire to bring art into the homes of people.

Influenced by the French post-impressionist artist Paul Cézanne, David was educated at Burnley Grammar School and remained in the town where he produced his popular paintings at his studio in Bridge Street.
