William Ritchie

WORKSHOP 20th and 21st MAY

Presented by Warrnambool Artists Society Inc.

William is originally from Warrnambool where he developed a passion for the natural environment and its conservation, which is now the focus of his artwork. William currently lives and works as an artist in Victoria’s Macedon ranges.
William is a qualified scientist with a PhD in biology who now works as a wildlife artist constructing highly realistic wildlife paintings, drawings and sculptures that have received numerous awards and commendations.
He is comfortable working in any medium but specialises in oil, watercolour and gouache.
This workshop was another great success, members produced some excellent work under the capable guidance of a very good tutor. Our thanks to William for a very enjoyable weekend of painting.

Our Annual Awards was held again over the July school holidays, and once again the standard of work was exceptionally high. Our judge was Ren Gregoric, from the Warrnambool Art Gallery. To see his comments and view some of the work, Click Here
