In this art workshop David will be teaching you watercolor from beginning to end, starting with teaching you how to take total control of the watercolor medium and learning to use that control to create well composed watercolors. Subject matter will be changing every day with a photo reference supplied in the morning, and switching to your reference photo in the afternoon. Art lessons will include: loosen up your watercolor technique, adding life/people into your paintings, controlling your wet-into-wet watercolor washes, city scenes simplified, and reflections in water. David’s goal in this art class is to teach students to concur the medium of watercolor and he takes great pride in making sure that every student leaves with the ability to control.
David has been teaching watercolor since leaving the American Academy of Art in 1983. He has taught across the US and Europe. For over 30 years, David worked as a storyboard illustrator for a major advertising agency, but always used his vacation time to teach workshops and weekly classes. In 2014 he focused his attention on his fine art teachings, and is now doing workshops full time due to the popular demand of his teaching style. David is the author of WATERCOLOR COMPOSITION MADE EASY, and HOW TO SKETCH WITH WATERCOLOR. He has had two different articles published in “International Artist” magazine and in “Watercolor Magic”, as well as publishing a weekly newsletter on Pinterest and producing YouTube videos.
