Join David on a Watercolor Journey to learn the most valuable concepts and techniques. This workshop will save you countless hours of trial & error by demonstrating approaches in an easily understood manner that will open new doors of discovery and creativity. Participants will be provided with reference photos, drawing guides, typed outlines, and step-by-step instruction through all stages of the painting process. The workshop is packed with demos, guided practice and individual help, both in the studio and en plein air. Regardless of your level of experience, whether the subject matter is a Street Scene, a Misty Lake, or a Radiant Floral, you’re almost guaranteed to leave with a handsome work of art, and the skills, concepts, and confidence to take your paintings to a higher level. David will demonstrate a wide variety of techniques, including "wet-on-wet," "pouring," "spattering" and "spraying" – methods and approaches that will keep your paintings fresh with exciting blends and textures, and keep you inspired and eager to explore your new watercolor capabilities long into the future.
