Dale will also be a featured artist during the Carson Valley Art Studio Tour, October 8-10, 2021. You can stop by the Copeland Gallery during the Tour and meet Dale. He will be doing a demonstration on Saturday October 9, 2021.
Dale’s process is simple and unique and he paints using a palette of the primary colors and white. Dale says, “All colors in nature come from the primaries: red, yellow, and blue. It is a challenge and is exciting to strive to duplicate the colors that I see in landscapes and wildlife.”
He is drawn and inspired by the peace and solitude of the desert, the mountains, marshes, and wildlife of Nevada and the west.
Dale also does pen and ink and has done wildlife on wood in ink and colored the drawing with oil color pencils. He uses the old dip pen for all of his ink work, and has used technical pens, but has found that by using the old pens the nib is more flexible for a variance in the lines.
Dale says that every piece of art that he does is an opportunity to learn and grow. “It is a great satisfaction for me in talking to people about my work, to have them relate to what they see in my paintings and pen and ink drawings.”
