Will Kirkpatrick is a realist oil painter whose interests span landscape, still Life, seascape. marine, animals, floral, sporting, portrait and figure subjects. He maintains a working studio at his home in Hudson and regularly paints in his Boston studio at 450 Harrison Ave., in the SOWA district.
Will has taken courses at The School of the MFA in Boston, and has learned his craft studying with Boston Painter, Ed Stitt - ten years- and with Christopher Gorey - five years- who now shows at his own gallery and studio in Cape Breton. Will teaches painting at Post Road Art Center in Marlboro, Ma.
Will's first love is painting in oil, and in the past, and on occasion, he has found watercolor and intaglio printing to be more appropriate for projects at hand.
Will’s aim is to communicate his appreciation of people, places, things and moments, to those who share common sensibilities. His accumulation of years and varied experience accounts for the diverse subject matter of his paintings.
