David Bailey, born and raised in southwest Ohio. David has drawn and painted most of his life. Out of high school we went on to attend the Dayton Art Institute. He started to study watercolor painting in 1994. In the year 2007 he started instructing and doing demos around the country. David's style of painting could be described as loose and splashy backgrounds with detail around his main subject matter. He loves helping others find their way into the world of watercolor.
