Osral Allred would make you rethink watercolor. Spend any time with his work and you were quickly convinced that watercolor was not simiply the realm of broad washes and cheery, bright colors; nor that it was only for painting pretty flowers. For over forty years his dappled surfaces, and rich, earthy colors reveled in the the complicated planes and gritty textures of tractors and trains, giving the medium a serious dose of testosterone.

Allred passed away quietly in his home on January 21st this year, and the warmth of his personality and strength of his brush will be missed by the community…

We remember the late Osral Allred in the February 2014 edition of 15 Bytes.
