Quick Fact Friday 2020-01-10
Posted on Jan 10th, 2020

Largely a self-taught artist, his primary medium was watercolor. He specialized in painting families of birds in their natural habitat or in foliage and often with nests. He collected and prepared approximately 1,000 bird skins, learning from noted South Carolina ornithologist Arthur Trezevant Wayne on how to prepare and preserve them. These bird skins would provide Dingle with an accurate basis for his watercolors. His research would lead to the addition of six species to the State List of birds: the Cory's Shearwater, the Glossy Ibis, the Leach's Petrel, the European Widgeon, the Hudsonian Godwit, and the Clay-colored Sparrow. His work is part of the permanent collections of the Gibbes Museum of Art in Charleston, South Carolina.
