William Haskell Artist

Santa Fe, New Mexico

Spady Angie Portraits 021 300x217Nestled in a high desert terrain, the regional landscapes and villages of the West inspire artist William Haskell to create exquisite acrylic works, which reflect his passion for this unique and diversified landscape. Weathered adobe structures are drenched in a crisp white light beneath Western mountain ranges, mesas and prairie lands in many of Haskell’s colorful paintings. His focus on detail in his work goes beyond mere description of subject and draws the viewer into the painting for a more intimate connection with everyday forms and a sense of place. With the use of dry brush techniques, I am able to take watercolor or acrylic to a different level by working as translucently or opaquely as needed.
