Robin F. Williams

This morning I’ve been consumed with the oil paintings of Robin F. Williams, a Brooklyn painter who graduated from RISD in 2006. Honestly it’s been a while since I’ve been so excited by a painter, but Robin’s work is phenomenal. I think it’s something in the way that the details and highlights are rendered that seem totally flawless. In the top image I love the reflections in the ornaments, in the second it’s the ruffles in her dress, in the third it’s the inner tube in the water and in the last it’s tiny, perfect details in her veil.

Most of the paintings are rather large, anywhere from 20″ to 60″, so I’m sure getting to see these up close and in real life would be fantastic. I want one of these in my home so very badly.
