Through three key landscape exercises, David will teach the ins and outs of his en plein air ink and color wash technique. He will show you how complicated landscape scenes can be abstracted, and distilled down to simplified, energetic sketches.
You’ll be painting a Traditional European River Village, a California Headlands Lighthouse with Trekkers, and an Asian Buddhist Pagoda.
During the workshop, David will also show you an alternative to using a painting palette. Please click on this YouTube link to see him creating no-palette color washes!

In my two-day Zoom workshop, I will cover the ins and outs of studio and plein air landscape sketching that is boldly simple. We will be painting a European River Village, Lighthouse Trekkers, and Asian Pagoda.
Taking advantage of minimal on-the-go art tools for ease of travel locally and globally.
Internationally published and exhibiting fine artist David Lobenberg has over thirty-five years experience teaching fine art both in California and out-of-state. He has established a reputation for conducting well organized, energetic, hands-on watercolor and drawing workshops.
“As a professional fine artist, I have taught as an adjunct art professor for over sixteen years, specializing in drawing, graphic design, acrylic and watercolor painting instruction. I conduct art workshops across the United States and Canada as well as online. My work has been published in International Artist, The Art of Watercolour, Watercolor Artist, and Pratique Des Arts magazines to name a few. I’ve exhibited in the U.S., Europe, Turkey, and Asia.
I live and work in sunny Sacramento, California. As a native Californian, I have been influenced by mostly sunny days and the bright colors used by my fellow Mexican American neighbors. My favorite definition about the art of watercoloring comes from a fellow Sacramento artist, Jose Montoya: “To watercolor is to control the flood”. I love painting and seeing bright and luminescent color washes mix and mingle on watercolor paper. Three of my favorite artists are the late Charles Reid, Nicholas Simmons, and Kenneth Potter.” Check David Lobenberg’s website.

“The session recordings are one of the reasons these live on-line workshops are better than in-person workshops. The other reason is that we can sit comfortably and look over the shoulder of the artist during the demo. I’m so glad that you are presenting these workshops!”
“Love, love love your online classes! I’ve done two so far and have really enjoyed both. I feel my work has improved a lot thanks to your online workshops.
You do the BEST job of these workshops. I love the pace, and the instructors are all so willing to stop and help students!”
“Jackie, the courses and quality of instructors you have cultivated through French Escapade V.I.E.W. is world-class. Jackie, you do such a great job hosting the program — you are on top of your game with production quality, responsiveness with quick replay links, and also announcing upcoming events to students. A side benefit is your fun, wickedly sharp and entertaining sense of humor. Keep up the great work. I’m not surprised that V.I.E.W. is expanding and doing so well.”
