Demonstration – This month, our demonstrator will be William Ritchie, a renowned wildlife artist.
William describes himself as follows:
“A former scientist with a PhD in biology, William now works as an artist constructing highly realistic paintings, drawings and sculpture that have received numerous awards and commendations.
William’s skill as an artist, coupled with his understanding of biology and the natural world, presents a unique perspective that is represented in the detail and character of his artwork. This unique blend allows him to more accurately portray subjects in ways that invite others to learn and better appreciate them.
In 2016 and 2017, William was a finalist in the coveted Holmes Art Prize for realistic bird life art. He is also a member of the prestigious Society of Animal Artists (SAA), an international organization comprised of members who produce the best animal art in the world.”
William is sure to inspire both beginners and experienced artists who are keen to branch out into areas they have not previously explored.
