Dave Nestler is well known for not just his paintings of beautiful women and his photo realistic style. But also for his mastery and control of acrylic paint. Any one who has met Dave at a convention knows that he is always willing to share information, tips and techniques on acrylic painting to anyone that is willing to listen.
Through a chance meeting at a convention in New Jersey last year, Dave was approached by the publisher/ editor of Airbrush Action Magazine. Although Dave uses no airbrush in his paintings, the groundwork was laid to produce an instructional DVD that was beneficial to not only those willing to learn about acrylic painting, but cross over tips that would benefit airbrush artists as well.
This past summer, Dave spent a week in Airbrush Action’s studios painting 10-12 hours a day for 5 days producing the painting “Armed and Fabulous”. The result is a 120 minute tutorial explaining in easy to understand details, all aspects of painting with acrylics.
