This is a great opportunity to learn painting light and value from one of the finest artists today, Daniel Sprick.
It Started When He was Just Four Years Old
When Daniel Sprick was just four years old, his father did a drawing and then handed a piece of paper and a pencil to Daniel to give it a try. From that moment, Daniel was hooked.
Through the years, Daniel’s love for drawing grew and, at age 20, he got serious and threw himself into making art. For Daniel, painting was do or die … he felt as though his life depended on it. With that philosophy, Daniel kept at it. As he could see progress happening, that is when he felt the most encouraged to continue following his path in art.
Along with creating art, Daniel also studied the history of art, generating in him an affinity for the 19th century naturalist painters and the way in which they used paint.
