Richmond-based representational oil painter David Tanner pays a visit to Daphne’s Corner to talk about his painting process with Virginia Currents* host Daphne Maxwell Reid.
From David Tanner’s website:
David Tanner is a representational oil painter in Richmond, Virginia. Since receiving a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in illustration from Virginia Commonwealth University in 1991, his study of traditional painting technique includes workshops with modern masters Nelson Shanks in Philadelphia and Robert Liberace in Washington DC.
After more than a decade of oil portraiture, David has been focusing on figurative and plein-air painting since 2006. Frequent traveling has provided rich opportunities for capturing the light and color of locations in Russia, Italy, Spain, Morocco, and Great Britain. While visiting painting collections in these countries, David has studied the work of Sargent, Sorolla, Zorn, Repin, and other late 19th and early 20th century masters.
