Richard Dotson's brother taught him to draw at age 5. This gave him a hunger for art. Dotson started drawing whatever he could, and with help and direction he started drawing birds from photos. By the time Dotson was in his teens he wanted to learned as much as he could about painting. But he felt the teachers never really demonstrated how to. "They would just have us draw this and paint that. At first I didn't understand that the paint or media was teaching me everything I needed to know, all I had to do is work with it" says Dotson. Through the years oil painting has taught him so much on how to control the paint. Dotson still learns new things that can be done with oil paint. He loves the vibrant color he gets with certain techniques that he feels he can't get with other paints. As he was growing up he enjoyed the surrealist style paintings. He loved all the strange twists and hidden meaning in paintings. In response Dotson has been developing his own style of surrealism.
