I am a narrative realist oil painter who adapts Old Master methods of layer-painting to contemporary subjects. My main focus is people.
Besides oil paintings, you'll find pieces here in other media, particularly watercolor.
There's also a 20-minute film. Titled The Painters Vision," it explores the deep connection between how painters see, and what
see when you look at art.
"Man At Window," oil on linen, 40 x 50 in., 2014. My latest work. Detail views are in the Portfolio section.
This and other paintings will be in a solo show, "William Oberst: Paintings," at Touch Art Gallery, 281 Concord Avenue, Cambridge, MA from March 17-31, 2014.
