If you’ve enjoyed my free Facebook Live Watercolor Escape Saturdays, newsletters, and YouTube channel, consider buying me a cup of coffee. Now that we have fulfilled our dreams by moving to the Great Northwoods, we need some help getting up and running. We want to offer the best quality product possible and continue our free demos and information. Why? I want to continue teaching artists to truly see by sharing my knowledge.
Dale L Popovich IWS is an award-winning watercolorist and teacher passionate about capturing the American landscape’s raw beauty with a brush’s fluid stroke. Talent and training aside, it’s Dale’s vision that best informs his work. By age 20, he had lost 80% of his eyesight. Dale learned to rely on his mind’s eye to sustain him. After a nine-hour major brain surgery removing a cyst on his optic nerve, he had to learn how to walk and write again. With vision finally restored, he discovered he could see more clearly than before, efficiently filtering out the visual “noise” around him to focus on a subject’s essentials. His paintings began to reflect a certain purity of perception, and this “way of seeing” became the hallmark of his painting.
