William Welch’s second showing at the Galerie Blanche in Giverny was a successful display for the month of September into October of his recent works in watercolor and acrylics of the “Moods in the Lily Pond”. It featured small studies of differing times of day and night of the pond surface of Claude Monet’s beloved water lilies. Watercolors rounded out a well-received collection. Also in Welch’s fall schedule was a stay on the Seine River with painter friends for a week of travel and painting instruction. Working in his studio in Arles , Bill finished some studies as well of palazzos and canal scenes from his early September visit to Venice Italy . Many of these new works will be seen in the 2017 posting of New Works on this site. Congratulations to the artist on a busy and very productive fall!
