ARTIST OF THE MONTH

January 2017 -  Bill Dougal



 

 

 

 

Bill’s show will feature pen and ink / watercolor pictures. The subjects are interesting places in Lebanon and Willimantic. A Lebanon resident, he loves the local scenery and buildings. The style avoids tight renditions in favor of a sketch feel in the line work, and a loose watercolor wash. This spirited style is used for illustrations in The Glastonbury, Valley and West Hartford books.

 

As a freelance artist, he does illustrations for advertising, publications and presentations. He also illustrates for children’s book authors who self publish. This includes his own books, Like “This and That From Bill’s Hat”. Bill is working on his fourth video for kids. They are a mix of his cartoon artwork, songs, comedy writing and acting. The video, “Fish Fact Fun” was a finalist in the Blue Ocean Film Festival. Trailers for videos and live show can be seen by searching YouTube for “Bill Dougal channel”.

 

Caricature drawing is a specialty. Bill does this by the hour at events, at fairs, and by the picture from CaricatureDrawing.net. They capture likeness with a bit of whimsy. Bill’s wife Dori draws them as well. Bill and Dori teach art classes after school through the recreation department.

 

Hundreds of paintings are available for browsing and buying at DougalFineArt.com.
