Two Artists present…
JOE GIRARD CHARLES DOOL
Having always been enthusiastic about art, Joe has, since retirement, concentrated his interest in Watercolour painting.
Joe’s inspiration often comes from the many scenes viewed and photographed while on camping trips throughout B.C. Having been raised in a rural setting has also given him a greater appreciation of nature. He finds inspiration from the many marine activities on the coast and from his birding outings.
Joe finds Victoria is a fine place to pursue his art as we are blessed with many fine artists, teachers and galleries.
Initial art studies at Univ. of Alberta, Edmonton, ’62 – ’65.
Botanical studies, Victoria, from ’94.
My work is now represented in 15 countries, and has been mostly botanical watercolour.
However, more recently I have worked mostly in acrylic, and occasionally I texture the canvas first with drywall mud.
