Realist Painter


Stephen Dobson

Urban landscapes & Seascapes

Stephen Dobson is a very prolific artist who developed a signature style early in his career. His realistic landscapes, seascapes and cityscapes are sought after for their thought provoking yet understated detail. He captures the essence of daily life in the city or on the water in rich oils on canvas and panel.

Stephen works primarily with Oil paints, and strives to present light and colour using brush, pallet knife and occasionally his fingers while painting. His sensitive and intuitive treatment of his subjects are immediately recognized and responded to as people go about their daily routines.

Stephen has been recognized by the American Art Awards in 2010, 2011 and 2012 by being awarded a number of 1st, 3rd and 5th places in a variety of Painting categories. This world competition is juried by 25 well- respected galleries from across the United States. He was also selected from over 1000 artists as a winner in the 2012 Artisan Direct International Fine Art Competition.

You may occasionally see him as he travels throughout Southern British Columbia painting and sketching. Please feel free to contact Artists in Canada about Stephen Dobson's work.
