While working on a wildlife subject of your choice, David will review fundamental skills in drawing, design and painting and also introduce techniques that are specific to painting in acrylics.  You will learn how to recognize the basic shapes that make it easier to draw any subject; how to mix any color by using a few basic ones; how to achieve smooth gradations; and how to create optical texture by using David's signature method of applying transparent washes over opaque layers.
