These are really amazing! Congrads on the award.. very deserved. And I realy love your color palette as well.Are you painting these directly from life, and do you do considerable composition changes when painting plein air?
D- I think PA is vital for development as a painter, but I’m a studio artist now. I use photos, alter them and use abstraction. I’m not really concerned in “Capturing Nature" anymore, I'm trying to explore internally.
The more times I see one of your pieces the more I like it.It just keeps on giving. Thank you for sharing.
That liquor store painting has got to be one my favorites yet. The color of the building is incredible!
Bravo .. I mean congrats Will. And bravo for your questing an internal adventure. Both paintings are top-notch works of composition, color, imagination, and downright eye pleasure.
Stairs is a wonderful piece and deserved a great prize... Congratulations, Bill!
Very nice pieces!Really love palette and composition in both of them.
Congrats on the 2nd place Bill!
BRAVO! this is absolutely amazing William...!
I have to echo the comment about the color of the Liquor Store- it's that perfect dark glow, pre- storm, late day atmospheric contradiction.Takes first prize in my book.Love how you capture so much moodiness with monochromes.
Nice! Two of my favorites...great texture on the liquor store, cool perspective and comp on the stairs.
Geroge Liquor. :-D
Love these both... I'd buy them in a NY second if I had the scratch. Great work William & Congrats on the recognition!!!!!
Nice going on these and congrats on the 2nd place. That works. That Elsar liquor looks like a prison, hahaha. Amazing how the people can effect the landscape they live in....makes you think twice about people. Awesome work as always Sir.
These are two damn good sleazy paintings, William, Always enjoy your style!
Wauw your palette is great.
Something about Liquor stores. ;-) thanks all--
Love these two paintings! I saw your work in an Art Interview email announcing the winners and I thought the award was well deserved. Congrats, it is a beautiful painting!
It feels better to win than to lose. It is easy to see why this won.
I like very much
