Byron Birdsall, Alaskan Artist 1937 - Present

An Alaskan watercolorist, Byron Birdsall is noted for his graded washes, a technique he studied as a disciple of Japanese wood block printers, Hokusai and Hiroshige.

Working out of a studio in a log house on the edge of Sand Lake near Anchorage, the artist divides his time between sketching and painting, and trips to the field for stimulation. Sometimes the field is within walking distance, sometimes far into Alaska's interior, often to the Pacific Northwest, and at times to other exotic (showing 500 of 1849 characters).
