William Brown - Painting in the tradition of the old masters
I have always had a lifelong affinity for art and regardless of the situation, art has been the overall goal to my work. Always painting from life, never working from photographic representations of my subject.
Each subject has a special presence and dynamic feel, focusing upon the importance of tiny details while reflecting on the overall space and feel around the subject to capture the light. I especially love light and how it moves across the subject in soft and subtle and hard edges.
I will apply my life experiences along with my craft to create works that reflect my love of beauty and life and personality.
