will be teaching students all the aspects of watercolor from beginning to end and everything in-between... including how to get a strong burning light into this scene and how to reflect the sun
into a wavy rippled lake. He will also get into reflections and waves when painting them into a scene. David has some new supplies that you will be surprised can be used in the watercolor
process... sign-up to find out what they are.
