2. David has constructed a 5 part series of 3 day workshops to share his secrets in

landscape painting as well as soft pastel techniques. He has found it necessary to increase the workshop by a extra day as he felt he was not covering the different elements adequately.

He is fast gaining a reputation for the high quality art

workshops he presents so you will not go home disappointed. Barring one or two

examples, he has assembled a completely new set of source material that is not merely a repeat of previous workshops. So if you've attended previous workshops you will be doing completely new work.
