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.
Have fun and get as much inspiration as possible for your own drawings and sketches.
Self-Portrait of Artist. This piece is solely done in Pencils. Took about 12-15 hours to complete.
I have been an artist for over 25 years, and have drawn everything from landscapes, still life, and portraits. These are various types of roses that I have drawn through the years. If you would like to see more of my artwork - check out my website - http://bill-richards.com

This is a pencil drawing I did of "Christ". Title - Welcome Home.
In 1987, I originally did this piece in Pencil and after 22 years, I thought to redo it. I hope you enjoy this version of "Conan The Barbarian". Drawn with pencils
Portrait of My Wife - Kathy. I have included works done in Pen/Ink, and watercolor. These were done in June-July 2011.
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
This piece was drawn in 1998 using Pencil.
This lighthouse is located within 15 minutes of where I live. Little Point Sable Lighthouse near Silver Lake Mi. This piece was done in watercolor wash and acrylic.
In 2001, I located a photo out of a magazine that I liked to do a Color Pencil drawing of. "Sara". I hope you enjoy my version.
