David R. Smith is the 2021 NPWS visiting art instructor for our annual workshop August 21, 22, and 23.
Smith will teach NPWS artists how he “masks and pours” to accomplish his well-known, light drenched florals. He will also lead us through important tips to select and compositionally improve our not-so-perfect photo resource, plan, execute, and complete a beautiful watercolor painting of a townscape. This portion of our workshop is a subject he has not taught to any other group or in any of his online classes.
Artists will be provided reference photos for the floral piece, plus a typed outline and step-by-step instruction through all stages of the painting process.
