with David Baker

10am-1pm, $175 *Lunch included if taken with Reimagine, Remake, Second State

Transparent watercolor, gouache, water soluble colored pencil; you have already met one or more of these. Let’s introduce them to one another! These materials have many outstanding characteristics, but each has some limitations. We’ll explore ways to expand your technical and expressive range by layering and combining them. These hybrid techniques can be adapted for either sketching en plein air or for creating finished studio pieces.

David Baker is a visual artist who specializes in poetic landscape painting, much of it done en plein air. His studio pieces are often reinterpretations of paintings done outdoors. His principle media are watercolor, oil, and charcoal. David is a lifelong artist/teacher. He recently retired as art professor Emeritus from Southwestern Michigan College. He earned his MFA degree from Indiana State University. Over the years he has mounted more than four dozen solo exhibits. David has taught at Ox-Bow since 2000 and is represented by Aveline Gallery in Benton Harbor and Rising Phoenix Gallery in Michigan City.
