We all have our favorite watercolorists. Some for their color and boldness, others for their creativity and draftsmanship. Ralph Dunagin was one of my favorite CFWS watercolorists and I always looked forward to our annual show so I could see what Ralph was up to.
“His paintings, like him, were quiet, but spot-on in drawing and color combinations.” said Ken Austin, a long time friend and fellow artist.
Ralph recently passed and he and his talent will be missed.
His full sheet watercolors won awards each year.
Below is a selection of his work that appeared in past annual shows while he was an active CFWS member.
Ralph was a cartoonist for the Orlando Sentinel for almost 40 years. Read his story.
