About Willie

Besides being a portrait artist and a portrait teacher, Willie also regularly accepts commissions for landscapes, seascapes and still life. Painting mostly wet-into-wet (alla prima), his style leans toward being realistic-impressionistic. In painting and drawing he suggests detail to the viewer that is not visible. His philosophy is that the viewer or art lover should be invited into the painting, into the painting process and even into the world of the model or subject. This can only be accomplished by painting impressionistically, suggesting depth, movement and mood.
