Dale Watson is an architectural illustrator and fine artist from the Charleston, SC area.
His architectural renderings and illustrations are a blend of traditional and digital media. He strives to use the best qualities of each to produce work that stands out for his clients. He can produce both loose concept sketches and finished presentation.
In his fine art he enjoys working in watercolor, acrylic and oil. He works both in plein air and in studio.
John is a Charleston native, and much of his artwork reflects his love of the Lowcountry.
