Al Albrektson passed away earlier this year at the age of 102. This post, written six years ago, includes a video about this amazing painter. I learned a lot from Al, mostly from his vivid colors and loose paint strokes. I wish I could have taken a class with him. Wherever he is now, I’m sure he’s made it a brighter place. Peace.
Another tribute to Al. https://www.providencejournal.com/story/entertainment/arts/2019/10/23/100-year-old-watercolorist-al-albrektson-honored-by-retrospective-exhibit-at-providence-art-club/2436347007/
