”I love the lush tropical foliage of this coastal area, coupled with the drama of the salt marsh and the ever present big sky. To me I find painting subjects everywhere, and at all times of the day. In the early morning and evening, the colors are rich and saturated. I also love the intensity of mid-day light, coastal fog, and rain clouds of every kind. They all beg to be painted.” In this 3-day workshop, David will demonstrate and share his recipes for an amazing variety of washes, glazes, and blending skills—achieving great skies, shadows and reflection that create luscious watercolors.
