David White Demonstration in May


Professional artist David White gave a brilliant demonstration on how to go about painting dogs using acrylics. He demonstrated both a black and a brown newfoundland, showing how he achieved a striking animal portrait.

The advice flowed freely and finally he encouraged everyone not to give up, but to keep trying to paint.


Since he is so busy with commissions these days, we were very fortunate to have him with us again this year.
