Beautiful Art by Bill Richards


Welcome to the gallery artwork of Bill Richards from Hart, MI USA. I hope you will enjoy his unusual and beautiful portraits. His gentle touch and rendering of roses is exceptional. Shading work of yellow rose petals is outstanding.

Take a look at the Wizard…the best idea is the black background which suits perfectly to the entire magical atmosphere of the drawing.

Welcome home pose of Christ is so accurate that I could not think about anything better. Outstretched and welcoming hand gesture is the point of this drawing.



The pencil shading of Conan -The Barbarian, his masculine body is awesomely well done. A real warrior image, brave, scary, courageous and fearless. Great pencil drawing.

Bill Richards wife Kathy portrait, in this very relaxing pose which is very cool idea. You seldom see portrait drawings in this fashion.

Portrait drawing of the late Patrick Swayze is a very nice piece of artwork.

Elvis Presley’s mysterious face drawing… as if in a daydream.

Sundown (or sunrise?) scenery watercolor painting with the Lighthouse is such a great idea. Very symbolic.

Color pencil portrait drawing of Sara Parker is just so cool. Shading pencil work on her skin color is great and the realistic eyes are fantastic.

Enjoy Bill Richards Gallery

Have fun and get as much inspiration as possible for your own drawings and sketches.

Pencil drawing of Patrick Swayze

Someone I talked to had done a drawing of Patrick Swayze, and I informed her of how to get more "tone" out of the drawing, even tho it could be still considered a light drawing. In about 6-8 hours I came up with this drawing of Patrick Swayze. I hope you enjoy
