Class Description
    Like California’s San Andreas fault line, David Lobenberg likes to shake things up. He applies watercolor
    paint to paper with splatters, swabs, slaps, splats, and slashes. It is added, subtracted, and added again. He
    floods, blossoms, and textures. His style is about gesture, no-holds-barred expressive color, odd shapes in
    odd places, soft transparency and hard opacity. This Golden State artist calls it “California-Vibe
    Portraiture”. In his three-day workshop, you too will learn how to shake It up starting with David’s method
    of posing and taking photographs of your subjects to tracing out simple outline contour drawings of their
    head and features from the photographs. The drawings are then easily traced onto sheets of watercolor
    paper from quarter to full sheet size. After that, it’s time to California-Vibe them!

    He has had his work published nationally and internationally in American Artist, Southwest Art, American
    Art Collector, Plein Air, The Palette, Pratique Des Art, and The Art Of Watercolour magazines.
