Meet Plein Air Artist David Diaz

I recently had the pleasure of spending an afternoon with local plein air painter, David Diaz. Though it’s a cloudy day, David brightens up the block with his contagious personality. We talk about when the best time of day is to capture lights and shadows, color theory, and his seriously impressive collection of oil paints! It’s all about the “intensely pigmented” shades he tells me.

With his involvement in, and relationships to, the Maryland Federation of ArtPaint Annapolis, and the McBride Gallery, David has created a name for himself, his work, and his dedication to the arts. He is a delight to talk with and is a great representation of our bubbling Annapolis arts scene!
