About the Book
Botanical Realism artist, William Colclough Thomas presents twenty selected paintings from his ongoing 'en masse' series of large acrylic on canvas paintings in this beautifully displayed book. Each painting is presented as a whole and in larger detail, to simulate what the viewer would see upon close inspection. The details show the rich expressive brushstrokes behind the realistic image presented from afar.
Fine artist, painter, of botanical realism working in Albuquerque, NM. Foliage and floral works. Previously 25-yr. illustrator and graphic artist for the Birmingham News in Alabama. Botanical garden enthusiast (such as that goes). My paintings provide a setting for floral and/or foliage exploration while honoring man's stewardship of botanical cultivation. This pursuit affords a more personal means to partake in nature and show my gratitude. -The middle name is pronounced Coke-Lee (old English). Website: williamthomasart.com
