Biography from Bodega Bay Heritage Gallery:
Hal Reed was a draftsman, a cartographer, a soldier, an art teacher and an artist.

He was born in Frederick, Oklahoma in 1921, and his family moved to Southern California when he was seven years old.  He worked as a cartographer for the Auto Club of Southern California.  He put these skills to work during World War II and the Korean Conflict as an aerial photographer. 

During the war, he was awarded a battlefield commission and a bronze star.  After the war, he continued his art studies at the Art Center School of Los Angeles and at the Art
League of San Francisco where he studied under Nicolai Fechin.

As a successful artist living with his family in Sherman Oaks, California, he received commissions for portraits, and exhibited his works through many one artist shows.  He received substantial acclaim for medals he designed for various causes and awards.  He also is known for his ceramics.

In the early 1980’s, he founded Art Video Productions, and gathered talented artists and instructors who in addition to himself made instructional videos that are still available. His “Analogous Color Wheel” is still popular.  His own topics included color theory, figure studies, and portraiture.  Many artists credit him with being their teacher.
