the light and dark patterns of nature in order to build a successful painting. Painting is done
without a drawing, creating light and dark passages of color and value at the start of the
painting. From this point on you will hone in on smaller passages, to the final detail of the subject
matter. Students will complete two watercolor painting in this workshop.

Bio: Dale L Popovich, IWS, is a watercolorist and teacher who is passionate about capturing the raw beauty of
the American landscape with the fluid stroke of a brush. Spending his childhood summers in the
northwoods of Wisconsin, Dale learned to love its colors, textures, denizens, and moods – developed his
holistic approach to watercolor. Today, his paintings celebrate these American landscapes and man’s
humble efforts to tame it. Trained at The American Academy of Art in Chicago by Director and President,
Irving Shapiro, AWS, Dale was deeply inspired by this great American twentieth-century watercolorist. Dale
later taught for 22 years at The American Academy of Art.
He currently teaches at the Palette & Chisel, Chicago, Elmhurst Art Museum, Mainstreet Art Center, Lake
Zurich, and toweringwindsacademyoffinearts.teachable.com. DalePopovich.com
