BUFFALO KAPLINSKI

http://www.buffalowatercolors.com

BUFFALO KAPLINSKI is considered a MASTER WATERCOLORIST by many. His COLOR CHOICES have been in question by many. This however has not deterred his direction.  He studied with the FAMED MASTER, IRVING SHAPIRO in CHICAGO at the AMERICAN ACADEMY of ART, an art school noted for turning out great illustrators.  SHAPIRO was a AMERICAN WATERCOLOR SOCIETY MEMBER & had a conservative color palette, he did not like "BUFFALO COLORS".  

 

KAPLINSKI was infected with the PLEIN AIR VIRUS & continues today with that challenge.  KAPLINSKI has traveled the world painting in Europe, South America, including Chile, Peru and Ecuador, the Middle East, Morocco, Turkey and most recently the CINQUE TERRE, ITALY.  COLORADO, UTAH & ARIZONA are his favorite STATES - CANYONLANDS, ARCHES, CANYON de CHELLY, ZION and MESA VERDE are his FAVORITE PLEIN AIR locations.  Being able to live & paint in COLORADO is a great blessing, BUFFALO says " THE LORD put me here "
