David will review fundamental skillsin drawing, design and painting and also introduce techniques that are specific to painting with acrylic. You will learn howto recognize the basic shapesthat make it easier to draw any subject, how to mix any color by using a few basic ones, how to achieve smooth gradaions, and how to creat optical texture by using David's signature method of applying transparent washes over opaque layers.
