Break new ground in your painting practice by approaching traditional realism with innovative techniques. By experimenting with mixing oil, acrylic, ink, watercolor, and photographic materials on paper, plastics, and metal, David demonstrates how contemporary methods serve to develop persuasive imagery with an original visual voice. In his insightful slide presentations, David will discuss how artists throughout history have conveyed intimate panoramas, translucence, and nature in motion. These transformative methods, taught with a hands on instruction will inspire students to borrow methods from across time to access a new personal direction.

DAVID DUNLOP is a modern-day old master whose luminous landscapes draw from both Renaissance techniques and contemporary science. After receiving his MFA at Pratt Institute of Art, David built his reputation as a painter who combines artistic skill, knowledge and enthusiasm. The Emmy winning PBS television series Landscapes Through Time with David Dunlop also earned him an invitation to lectured at The Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City, as well as speaking, teaching, and exhibiting in many other museums and art institutions across the country and around the world. As a teacher, David is exceedingly well-read in pursuit of the underlying principles of art, exploring original sources and recent advances in neuroscience which he shares in his workshops, DVD’s, Youtube channel, and in his classes in home state of Connecticut at the Silvermine School of Art.
