Will Full Time Professional Self Taught


Will has been painting professionally for over 30 years, undertaking regular portrait commissions for private clients and producing artworks for art gallery exhibitions and works mainly with acrylic paints on canvas. His style can be immediately recognised as romantic and traditional. William is always happy to undertake commissions of nearly any subject and works exclusively from photographs that you provide. If you are unsure William can work with you to choose one, or alter elements within it to achieve what you want. William paints portraits, animals, properties and gardens as well as land and seascapes and abstracts. Prices and sizes are always negotiable. William always supplies his works framed to Guild of Framers Museum Archival standard, unless specifically requested not to. Works start at around £1200 and a work 12"x16" usually starts at £1400 including frame and delivery. Sizes from 8"x10" up to 36"x48" although for abstracts or diptychs/triptychs these can be made larger. Reviews ----------- "William is not merely a painter; he is a distinctive sensibility, with a poetic vision he explores in many media. His art is affirmative, evocative and forgiving..'. He states that the work 'offers us, in short, a return to the true and serious tradition." Sir Professor Roger Scruton "William's paintings represent a strikingly fresh current in contemporary art. His work is experimental, and he is also willing to take on larger themes as well as demonstrating a delight in detail and minutiae. Very few contemporary artists paint so consistently well." Dr David Morley, University of Warwick 'Beautiful painting beautifully presented. It was a real pleasure buying from William.' 'Gorgeous painting and great framing to complement. Fast shipping, outstanding packaging and tracking info provided. I am very happy with all aspects of this purchase. B Priore, US' 'This is a wonderful piece of art and I am delighted to have it. William is very willing to communicate, provide additional information and discuss his work. The painting was very well wrapped and arrived quickly and safely. It's the second piece I have bought from him and dealing with him is an added pleasure. Michael' 'More beautiful and breathtaking than on the internet.' 'Fast and easy transaction. Highly responsive communication from the artist with helpful comments. I would certainly buy from this artist again.' 'Perfect as always. I look forward to purchasing more in the future.' 'Fantastic painting as always, even better than it looked on screen. Securely packed and delivered quickly.' ‘We received the portrait of X yesterday and I believe the one of Y will be delivered on Monday. X is in love with it and she said she’s never looked at an image of herself and seen both herself and liked everything about herself until this. She loves what you did 100 times more than the photo that was based on and she was awestruck by your talent and generosity to work with in our budgets. I can’t thank you enough.’

I have just received a commissioned painting from Will and I am absolutely delighted. It was a group scene, set against a boat and harbour background. The likenesses are amazing and the quality of the art work, service, and the whole experience is outstanding. I cant recommend Will highly enough.

William has produced the most beautiful painting! He caught my father’s likeness so well, but more than that, he captured the expression on his face perfectly. He knew exactly what I was aiming for, and the finished portrait has far exceeded my expections. Not only is the portrait everything I could have hoped for, but the framing has been thoughtfully chosen and carefully executed. William is lovely to work with, and I have enjoyed our conversations. Thank you so very much, William. You are brilliant!

Absolutely outstanding piece of work. How Will managed to get the final painting from such a small photo is an amazing feat! The detail is incredible. Could not be happier with the end result. Painting was a gift and the recipient was completely overwhelmed. Will is delightful to work with and I'm humbled to know someone of such huge talent! Thank you Will.
