Full day watercolour workshop with William Rogers!
William works out of his backyard studio in Antigonish, Nova Scotia, Canada. His art reflects his passions as well as his environment.
Living in small town Nova Scotia in the 21st Century has the best of both worlds. He is close to all the plein air subjects he needs and the modern technology and travel allow him to be a part of the larger world and the world of fine art, that he lives and breathes.
William has participated in Plein Air Competitions and Events in Easton MD, San Angelo TX, Carmel CA, Frederick MD, Annapolis MD, Cumberland MD, Calloway Gardens GA, Bennington VT, Hamilton Bermuda, and Castine ME among others and have been the recipient of numerous awards.
William is a multi-medium artist who works in watercolour, oil, drawing media, and printmaking. He occasionally uses acrylics as well. His subject matter consists of plein air landscapes, figures from life, horses and equestrian scenes, and anything else that catches his eye.
In May 2014, William served as the Royal Tour Artist for HRH Prince Charles and the Duchess of Cornwall during their visit to Canada, a great honour and the thrill of a lifetime. A number of the completed works from the tour were selected by HRH the Prince of Wales for his collection.
