As a self-taught watercolour artist, Vic Dohar is continuously studying and learning about the expressive nature of this creative medium. He has participated in several workshops taught by professionals such as Frank Webb and Linda Kemp, incorporating techniques acquired from these masters, while at the same time developing his own approach and style. In 2009, he achieved Fellowship status with the Ottawa Watercolour Society and continues to strive to meet new personal goals.

Growing up as a child, he was also influenced by his late father Joseph Dohar, who himself was a landscape artist.

Vic Dohar’s late father, Joseph Dohar, poses beside one of his paintings of the Dakota Mill, north of Burlington, Ontario sometime during the 1970’s.

He is an active member with several regional art organizations, volunteering and currently holding the executive position as Treasurer with the Ottawa Watercolour Society, acting as the coordinator for the Nepean Fine Arts League Spring and Autumn art shows, and is past Treasurer with the Manotick Art Association. In addition, he is a Scout Leader with the 27th Nepean, enjoys camping, outdoor activities and engaging the youth to appreciate the outdoor environment.
