Featured Pastel Artist: Bill James

Bill James collage

Bill James is one of the most fascinating pastel artists that I know of. His pastel work is mainly impressionistic with a lot of shifts in light and color and his works in watercolors and oils are equally stunning. For the first part of his career, he worked as an illustrator where he developed a love of painting figures and telling stories by the use of expressing emotion.
Bill is a signature member of the Pastel Society of America, which awarded him the title of Master-Pastelist. The articles concerning all three media he works with were published by Artist’s Magazine, Watercolor Artist, the Pastel Journal, American Artists, and his paintings have also been included in a different art books. The list of awards is endless and most of them are listed on his very informative website, where Bill offers the online service of looking at paintings created by students, and/or professional fine artists who would like to improve a painting, or solve a problem in creating that painting. He also offers tailored individual online lessons.
Bill James is a graduate of Syracuse University and now lives and works from his studio in a small town in Florida.
