Les Williams loves working with dip pen and watercolour wash, working on the urban landscapes of London and the rural scenes of Norfolk. He has travelled widely and looks to record his travels in sketchbooks. Drawing and painting on location adds a vibrancy to work, that cannot be easily replicated in the studio.
He finds inspiration in the life and buildings of the City of London, having worked there for many years. “It is impossible not to be impressed by how buildings and areas rapidly change, providing so many opportunities to record history in the making”.
He has trained at the Royal Drawing School, and under some of the leading tutors of watercolour in the United Kingdom.
Les is President of the Society of Graphic Fine Arts, a Council member of the Lloyd’s Art Group, Maritime Art Group, Essex Art Group, West Norfolk Artists Association, an associate of the Institute of East Anglian Artists and The Drawing London Group
In June, Les participates in the North Norfolk Open Studios in the village of Castle Acre, and with the SGFA at the Mall Galleries in March

Acclaim for Les Williams
2006 Lloyd’s Art Group ‘Best Newcomer’ Prize
I was initially struck by the great sensitivity in Les’ work and it is a joy to see that this sensitivity has not been lost as his work has evolved and continues to grow in stature.
