A WATERCOLOR RETROSPECTIVE by Dan Petersen
MARCELLUS GALLERY : JANUARY 28TH - MARCH 18TH
Dan Petersen is a name synonymous with watercolor landscapes in California. After completing graduate work in his chosen medium at San Jose State University, he returned to the valley to paint and teach. He has been a favorite instructor of drawing and painting at Modesto Junior College for over 35 years. Scores of art educators on every level, professional and Sunday Painters, as well as illustrators and designers of every stripe have studied with Mr. Petersen.
Mr. Petersen emphasizes the quality of transparency in his paintings, which is a distinctive feature of his watercolors. He employs many overlays or glazes to bring color harmony to the objects he paints. In addition, he attempts to incorporate subtle cubistic devices designed to help tie the many unrelated parts into a unified and pleasing whole. His distinctive style achieves freshness with control by using multiple layers of liquid stop out rubber to define the details in his subjects.
Mr. Petersen has received numerous State and National awards, including Best of Show, First Place and several top National Awards at Watercolor USA. His work is in many public and private collections and he is a popular lecturer and judge for art groups throughout California.
