Residing in Texas since 1977, David draws his watercolor subjects from a host of “recollections” involving cities, small towns and rural stretches throughout the Midwest and Southwest, particularly old Route 66.
Having earned his Masters and Ph.D., he seeks ways to blend academic studies with his art creations, and particularly loves the writings of artists Robert Motherwell and Robert Henri, along with literary giants including Ralph Waldo Emerson, Henry David Thoreau and Marcel Proust. These artistic and literary geniuses he regards as kindred spirits.
Currently, David is working on a series of watercolors and short stories commemorating art in small town U.S.A.
In his demo he will show us techniques he employs for landscape painting--cloudy skies, leafed-out trees, detailed trunk, branches and bark rendering, bushes and shrubs, weeds, grasses and stony soil textures.
For the Workshop, he will select a model for a landscape with architecture as a focal point and provide an 8 x 10" color reference photos of the composition. The workshop Fee is $50 per student.
Each Student should bring a single full sheet of watercolor paper, cold-pressed, either 90 or 140-pound, as well as the following colors for a restricted palette: Winsor & Newton professional colors--transparent yellow, winsor red, winsor blue winsor green, alizarin crimson and winsor violet.
Brushes--One good liner brush and a round brush size 10-12 for the minimum. A flat brush 1/4" or 1/2" would also be valuable. If students wish to bring an extra 1/2" flat brush for modification, Ihe will assist them in making a "foliage brush", using an X-acto knife to alter the shape of the brush.
