Inspired by his travels to the polar regions, David will paint an iceberg. As he does so, he will share essential watercolour techniques using colour and light to create dramatic movement and the illusion of space.

During this unique opportunity to virtually visit the artist’s studio, setups for working large watercolours and plein air kits will be discussed. In addition, a short and entertaining video of recent encounters with polar bears and penguins will start the evening and give context to the watercolour demonstration.

Please note the time of this demonstration is 8:00 pm Eastern time.  If you live in another time zone, please adjust your time accordingly. 

A recording of the demonstration will be available for paid ticketholders to review at their leisure, up until June 9, 2022.
