Impressionists such as Monet, Renoir, Degas and Cezanne have always inspired David, and he has became interested in trying to print photographic images in the style of impressionist paintings. David used different types of film and filters along with different printing mediums but was never satisfied with the results. When digital photography with computer editing became available, a new realm of possibilities were opened for him. Even with artistic filters and painting software, he felt there was still something missing. David then learned how to create realistic painting effects.

In this webinar, you will learn:
