Collection: Dale L. Popovich

Dale L Popovich IWS is an award-winning watercolorist and teacher who is passionate about capturing the raw beauty of the American landscape with the fluid stroke of a brush. Talent and training aside, it’s Dale’s vision that best informs his work. By age 20 he lost 80% of his eyesight. He learned to rely on his mind’s eye to sustain him. After a 9-hour major 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.
Devoted to both painting and teaching, his work hangs in collections around the country.

Artist Statement:

I have been a watercolorist and art instructor for over 40+ years and firmly believe that it’s important for the artist to know the fundamentals of art, drawing, composition, perspective, and color theory. Only a foundation in these basics allows artists to give their imaginations free rein, to depart from reality (a little or a lot) to create a unique and personal vision.
