Meet David R. Becker, this week’s top American Watercolor Weekly Ambassador!
Since 1961, David has spent all of his artistic life and career in the city of Chicago. Becker studied at American Academy of Art in Chicago and is the reason that a large majority of his subject matter comes from his life here in the city that he loves so much.
After studying at The American Academy of Art in Chicago, Becker went into illustrating for a major advertising agency J. Walter Thompson and later for Foote Cone and Belding. He also started teaching around the country, right out of school, but always found time for his favorite ambition, creating fine art paintings.
David is the author of Watercolor Composition Made Easy, and How to Sketch with Watercolor, both Northlight Books. He has had two different articles published in International Artist Magazine and in Watercolor Magic. Has reached signature status to the Transparent Watercolor Society of America, and has won numerous awards for his work from watercolor societies around the country.
