Internationally known Key West artist William Welch developed his love and skills in painting under the able instruction of prominent American water-colorists and master oil painters. He refers to himself as an "academic impressionist", drawing on his training in realism and expressive passion for light and color. From miniature watercolor scenes of extreme fine detail to large and expressive oil murals and screens, Mr. Welch's style evokes the romance of color and light in the true impressionist's spirit. Mr. Welch's current honors include recent inclusion in the new book, "The Best in Oil Painting", a Rockport Publications book. He is a contributor of work to the United States Department of State's Art in Embassies Program, and has been honored by President Clinton and Secretary Christopher for his support.
