awards judge

William Schneider/ NOAPS Master Artist
NOAPS Schneider head shot.jpg

William A. Schneider’s work has evolved since he finished his studies at the American Academy of Art.  Workshops with Carolyn Anderson, Dan Gerhartz, Harley Brown, Scott Christensen, Huihan Liu, and Richard Schmid among others solidified his understanding of the basics.  But he credits the many hours he spent studying and copying masterworks by Nicolai Fechin with loosening up his brushwork and approach to edges. 

 

He also describes four days of intense study and analysis at an exhibit of J.W.Waterhouse as an epiphany in understanding composition.  “The wonderful thing about art is that you can always get better.  I view myself as a perpetual student”.

 

William is a Master Signature Member of the Oil Painters of America, the Pastel Society of America, and the American Impressionist Society.  He has also been named to the Masters Circle by the International Association of Pastel Societies.

 

William has earned many national awards and has frequently been included in national art magazines.  He has also produced instructional art videos; for more information on William Schneider and to view his work visit his website at www.schneiderart.com.

Judges Statement

 

I consider it both an honor and a great responsibility to be a juror of awards. Art is so personal; we all want a fair shake.  I try to leave style and subject matter out of my decision. Although I paint relatively loosely and tend to focus on the figure, in the past I have given top awards to photo-realistic still lifes.

 

Here are the criteria I do look at (in this order):

  1. Drawing – First and foremost, it must be accurate. If the right parts aren’t in the right places, the painting won’t work for me.

  2. Design – The distribution of light and dark masses is what grabs the viewer from across the room.

  3. Value structure – Regardless of the key, I want the forms to seem solid. (Although they can be suggested…I still want them to hang together).

  4. Edges – It is a sign of mastery to depict the full hierarchy of edges, from razor-sharp to completely lost…it gives the paintings veracity.

  5. Color temperature – As we develop, the ability to see (and paint) the temperature relationship between light and shadow is usually the last basic skill we learn.

  6. “It” – Whether one calls it creativity, personal vision, concept, or something else, the best pieces reveal the artist’s unique interpretation…as in “that painting really has it!”
