Bill works mainly with acrylic paints. His paintings are on canvas, canvas weave or card specially treated to take acrylic paints. He has developed a distinctive style to capture the atmosphere and character of the scene he is painting. Themes of his paintings include Caribbean Culture, Seascapes, Landscapes and Portraits.
Photographs are shot either individually or bracketed and blended to create high dynamic range images (HDR). This technique expands both the tonal range and creative possibilities. Bill uses Photoshop CS6 to process and edit the photos to create the most effective interpretation of the image.
