Shadows by Sharon Will

Sharon Will’s commitment to painting is to capture the simple, everyday beauty around her in her native Michigan and beyond.

She is passionate about painting plein air (outdoors) whenever possible, as she feels the direct observation from life is the best teacher to truly see the subtleties of light and color in nature.

Working on sanded paper, her process begins with a pastel and alcohol/mineral spirits under-painting wash to establish value and color. Soft pastel is applied in layers, often in contrasting color and temperatures for vibrancy.

Over her 35-year career in painting, Will has won numerous national awards. She also operates a custom framing business from her home/studio in Washington Township and teaches occasional workshops.
