Bill Snow is a realist painter focusing on landscapes and cityscapes. His work explores the role of light in the perception of depth and atmosphere. His images come from travel as well as the local area. His objective is to create a pattern of light and shade, which conveys depth and captures the essence of a time of day. He works primarily in watercolor and oil. Recently he has developed an interest in the application of old master oil painting techniques, building up several layers of glazes over a monochromatic under-painting.
Bill’s love of color and light, as well as his interest in architectural subjects, developed in childhood growing up in Mexico and studying under Jaime Oates, a Spanish watercolorist. He has since studied art at the George Washington University and the Corcoran School of Art in Washington, DC as well as at the Maryland Institute and College of Art in Baltimore.
In 1995 he had a one-man show at the Baltimore Branch of the Richmond Federal Reserve. In addition, Bill has had two one-man shows at the Peninsula Gallery in Lewes DE, one in 2002 and the other in 2008. He participated in-group shows at the Peninsula Gallery in 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012 and 2013. He has also participated in Baltimore Watercolor Society and Rehoboth Art League group shows, and has been awarded prizes in both. In 2010 he received the Sarah Ethel Tunnel Award for “best in show” in the Rehoboth Art League’s Annual Members’ Fine Art Exhibition. In the 2011 Exhibition he won the Thomas Skelly Award for a painting of “exceptional merit” and in the 2012 Exhibition he received the Mary Hall Leach Award for “outstanding work”. Bill is a Signature Artist member of the Baltimore Watercolor Society and his works are held in corporate and private collections. He is represented by the Peninsula Gallery. Bill lives in Rehoboth Beach, DE.
