Dale McDonnell is an impressionistic landscape painter.  The Impressionist painters, especially Monet and Van Gogh have provided inspiration for Dale, and through his paintings he provides his own impression of nature.  “Nature has a spiritual quality and its colors captivate and inspire me every day.”

McDonnell utilizes soft pastels for his paintings with under coats of acrylic and pumice, he then utilizes an archival varnish to fix the painting and mount the painting onto a board.  Dale’s use of nontraditional techniques through the manipulation of pastel, acrylic and pumice brings variety and texture to his paintings.

Dale’s paintings are inspired by photos that he has taken throughout the southwest and through other travels around the world.
