Collioure


Acrylic on paper, 4" x 6" - NFS
William McEldowney Bonnell

I think Bill is so very talented. His work is unique, not easy I've discovered, and I don't get tired of his works. In fact, the more I look at them, the more I see and the more I like each one. This is one of my favorites--one of his first paintings of the village and the church tower. I'm trying to get him to paint more and larger paintings. That's me talking, the one who paints about as often as I exercise!

Boats


Acrylic on Canvas Board, 4" x 6" NFS
William McEldowney Bonnell

Hey, we're back from Amsterdam and Collioure, severely jeg-lagged, but catching up. Bill did some wonderful work in Collioure, I did zero. Here is one of his paintings, some brush work, some palette knife. I love the yellow boat on the right and the reflections in the water. Click on the painting for a large image with lots of detail.
