David Dewey Watercolor Workshop
with the musings of David as he paints his demo

The scene to be painted for David's Painting Demo

"Don't let the drawing get ahead of you.
In other words don't overdraw. You don't
want to spoil the fun of the painting."

"I'm defining the drawing with color." It's like poetry."

"I'm establishing my palette. Now the colors feed the painting."

"How many ways can you say red?"

"Color: I'm mingling on the palette;
I'm mingling on the paper."

"Be bright with your light,
balancing your lights and darks."

"When everyone sings in the opera,
you know exactly what's going on."

The same house painted fifteen years ago
with today's watercolor.

The Art of Communication
David Dewey...

...speaks with his hands,
...paints with his hands,
...and sings with his hands.

With Óskar at Iceland House

We three in Óskar art,
Óskar, Ruth and Bruce, were moored
for the workshop...

....while a house on Mechanic Street waited to be painted.
But first sketched.
And then painted by Óskar.
Afterward, back at Iceland House in Owls Head,
Óskar put on a quick painting demo to
show how to release water
beads of color.
