Fresh & Exciting Watercolors with David R. Smith

DSC_0116 copy copy

David R. Smith began his artistic journey studying Chinese Brush Painting in the United States and China.  A decade later, he was introduced to Western style watercolor painting and was amazed at how enjoyable and forgiving it was compared to working on rice paper.  Ever since, he has been hooked on watercolor painting, and has become a popular artist and instructor nationally, as well as a sought-after juror.  David is an award winner and signature member of the American Watercolor Society, and his work has earned him numerous “Best of Show” awards, signature memberships, showings in galleries and museums across the United States, and inclusion in publications including SPLASHThe Best of Watercolor and the International Artist Magazine.  With over 20 years of experience as a public school teacher, he is skilled at breaking down complex concepts and skills into easily learned chunks to help students find success.  As much as he loves to paint, he has found sharing his watercolor passion through instruction even more gratifying and he is most rewarded when he hears a frequent comment: “This is one of the best workshops I’ve ever taken.”
