Cove Discovery, watercolor by David Sallvellano
The Lodge Art Gallery

David Savellano is a plein air artist. The challenges involved in painting outside are essential to what makes this peculiar art form so vital, and a big part of David’s efforts to create the feeling and energy of spontaneous work. “When you paint outdoors, you’re completely immersed in the scene—the atmosphere, the mood,” says David. “You’re just soaking it in, feeling the subject—empathy—and actually capturing its essence.
 
Although largely self-taught as a watercolor painter, he credits his 30 years as a practicing architect with having given him the drawing skills and strong sense of perspective that have elevated his artwork to a professional level.
 
David’s passion for outdoor painting isn’t limited to his own sketches and paintings, he also teaches it, offering classes distinguished by their intimate size and the generous amount of personal instruction he provides. His expert instruction enables students to improve their artistic skills and knowledge.
