You’ll be taking more than notes at Menlo Art League’s February 13 daytime meeting with Bay Area artist, David Savellano! The event, which is free and open to the public, takes place from 10:00 am to noon at the Arrillaga Family Recreation Center, 701 Laurel Street, inMenlo Park.
Join David in this paint-along demonstration as he distills a dynamic city scene into simple shapes, expressive lines and colors. David works primarily en plein air and is known for his Bay Area urban paintings along the waterfront or on busy city streets.
Although self-taught as a watercolor painter, he credits his 30 years as a practicing architect with having given him the drawing skills and sense of perspective that have elevated his work to professional status.
David is a signature member of the National Watercolor Society and the California Watercolor Association. He also teaches classes in the Bay Area distinguished by their intimate size and generous amount of personal instruction.
Bring watercolor paper or a sketchbook, small kit of watercolor paints, and permanent black pen and work along as David teaches us how to tame a dynamic city scene.
The February League meeting is hosted by Tola Minkoff and Connie Besen.
