This exciting and fun class will cover the basic principles of oil painting specifically with regard to painting vistas and rooftops of Key West. A Douglas David painting workshop is a hands-on experience in the classic principles of painting. Using short demonstrations, students will look at the principles behind urban landscape painting and Douglas gives an overview of his color palette.

Douglas David has painted his way across the country, capturing the beauty and spirit of the things he loves- tranquil country landscapes, sunrises and sunsets on his favorite beaches, a simple pitcher of spring lilacs or peonies, a lemon, lime or a slice of watermelon on a checked tablecloth. Paintings that reflect comfort, warmth meaning and simplicity: similar to everything important to him- his close knit family, life-long friendships, creatively fulfilling work and giving his best. A recipient of numerous regional and national awards and honors, Douglas’ teaching is a way of giving back and sharing some of his journey with those who choose to study with him.
