Jean DOTARO : August 02 - 07, 2009
Watercolor : plein air landscapes, a poetic vision


Jean DOTAROdoratoJean Dotaro is an artist passionate about nature when earth, water and sky sing together in a delicate and melodious union. His varied palette makes us feel the sensations of nature revealing its intimate charm. The emotional experience becomes watercolor, not just a pretty picture but a real piece of art, that is to say, a moment of total sincerity in front of a landscape with which the painter is in full harmony. Each composition is like an instant in which the sense of time has stopped. In complete control of all the skills of his art, Dotaro is able to catch the inspiring ephemeral moment and to express it on paper with total accuracy in his use of elegant and subtle half-tones dominated by silvery greys, and subdued roses and blues.

Jean DOTARODoratoI would like to share with you my lifelong relationship with watercolor and teach you the theoretical and practical aspects of my method. Watercolor makes it possible to capture the fleeting moment and the poetic mood. I will first discuss the theoretical aspects like how to find subjects, how to define composition, how to analyse the quality of light and colors. I will review the type of tools like paper, brushes and pigments. The practice will start with a study drawing which is an essential aspect of watercolor. We will use either pencils, oil pastels, charcoal, Conté crayons, color pencils or chinese ink. When it comes to the actual technique of watercolor, I will insist on a palette using a restricted number of colors, the wet in wet technique and the control of washes and, of course, some other special techniques.

Jean Dotaro was born in Lyon in 1934 and has practiced watercolor for over forty years after his aristic education in Paris and his training as a watercolorist. He is a member of the comity of the Société des Artistes Français and Société Nationale des Beaux-Arts and exhibits in the salons Dessin et Peinture à l'Eau, Marine, Artistes Français,Automne and Versailles. He was awarded over twenty prizes and medals. Galleries : du Château in Auray, Art Déco in Versailles, Charlot in Enghien, Guérin in La Baule, Pygmalion in Saint-Nazaire, Rollin in Rouen, de l'Estampille in Lille, Univers'Art in Mans, du Vieux Belfort in Belfort, Royale in Québec.
