Painting by Charles Williams

Charles Williams is an immensely talented artist. I love how he blends his realistic paintings with a contemporary twist. Pizazz! His paintings are wildly realistic, and I swear you can FEEL the movement from them… especially the Ocean Works… After viewing a few I think that I came close to needing a Dramamine (in a good way!)! How cool to have something still show movement. Very talented!

Check out Robert Lange Studios Fine Art Gallery for more of Charles’ work!

Statement of Purpose

 I explore the relationship between human emotions and the natural environment. These parallel perspectives are the basis for my landscapes channeled onto canvas. Often, it’s my perception thatI feel compelled to paint a specific landscape. These feelings inspire me to capture honest moments, showing others a glimpse of what’s beneath the surface.

Catch you back here tomorrow!
