Bill Hartman lives, fishes and paints in Key West. He studied with internationally-known watercolorist Dong Kingman. He is also a member of the Society of Illustrators and American Watercolor Society. His work has appeared in newspapers and national magazines, including Field and Stream. He has illustrated several children’s books for a national publishing company as well as for a toy manufacturer.
His art is inspired by the elements of the natural world and his passion for the outdoors, especially sport fishing. These passions, which have taken him around the world, provide his subject matter and color palette.
His watercolors, acrylic (and digital) artwork are not always representational…his goal is to capture the intrinsic atmosphere of their location and reflect special moments in time and place and bring these to the viewer.
