Roger Dale Brown - Artist
Roger Dale Brown is originally from Tennessee, but he has traveled widely to study painting and continues to travel to offer workshops in different parts of the country. Having spent time along the Gulf Coast, he loves to paint the ocean. In Maine, he was attracted not just to the seascapes but also to the history of artists such as Gruppe, Strisik, Hawthorne and the Wyeths who have painted there.
In addition to landscapes, he also paints still lifes and figures, which help sharpen skills in drawing, composition and seeing color & value relationships.
He has written the first in a series of four books, entitled Images of the South. Each book will celebrate one of the four regions of the United States.
