David R. Becker
The Most Important Watercolor Workshop You Will Ever Take
June 26-July 1, 2016 (Four Teaching Days)
Returning for the 5th year in 2016
David will be teaching you watercolor from beginning to end; starting with teaching you how to take total control of the watercolor medium, leading to using that control of the medium to create well-composed watercolors. Subject matter will be changing daily with photo reference supplied in the morning and switching to students reference in the afternoon. Lessons will include: Loosen Up your Watercolor Technique, Adding Life/People into your paintings, Controlling your Wet-into-Wet Watercolor Washes, City Scenes simplified, and Reflections in H2O a Nautical Scene. David's teaching method goes from group teaching in the morning switching to one on one in the afternoon. This workshop is designed to benefit all levels of painters. Teaching students to conquer the medium of watercolor is David's goal and he takes great pride in making sure every student leaves with the ability to control.
David’s work has been featured twice in International Artist Magazine, Artists Magazine and Watercolor Magic. David is a signature member of the Transparent Watercolor Society of America and has published two watercolor books with Northlight Books: How to Sketch with Watercolor and Watercolor Composition Made Easy.
