"What, You Call This Watercolor?" by David Peterson

Join us for November’s art demo with David Peterson. David will demonstrate how he creates his original style watercolors. Beginning with an idea and sketch from life he paints loosely and quickly. He may even do two. He will explain how feelings about the subject matter along with value, color and shape contribute to the paintings. He will bring lots of art to show you.

David moved to Carmichael with his parents in 1956. He attended High School at El Camino and La Sierra. He took classes from both Kaneko brothers. In 1962 he had the first one-man art show in the new library at American River Jr. College.

David has paintings in private collections across the country. Since 2002, the artist has been accepted into dozens of state-wide juried shows and has won over 100 awards. David has been accepted into California State Fair Fine Arts Exhibit 8 out of the last 11 years. David was honored to have been a Yosemite Art Center visiting artist 2012-17.

David is a past President of WASH, Inc., Sacramento’s watercolor club and has been awarded NCA Master Painter Signature status. David was a staff member at Sacramento Fine Arts Center through 2018. He is presently a volunteer at the Arts Center. David’s work can be seen at Sacramento Fine Arts Center in Carmichael, Rancho Cordova City Hall, various regional art shows and venues.

David portrays the familiar scenes of our neighborhood in a humorous and enigmatic way. He shows you California landmarks, including urban scenes, the American River, and our neighborhood differently, simply and in a unique manner.
