Evening Falls On General Williams

Evening Falls On General Williams, watercolor, 8x10" Starting bid $125

My favorite statue at Belle Isle, Detroit, MI is of Major Gen. Alpheus Starkey Williams as he sits atop his horse, checking a map as his steed bows his head.

Williams, a Detroiter, was a congressman, a judge, a lawyer, a postmaster, a newspaper publisher and a failed gubernatorial candidate, and was appointed a Brigadier General for the Union Army in the Civil War.

  1. I like this one a lot. The colors define it as a statue, but it could easily be a real person. I also love the boldness and values of the statue, well done.

  2. I like the blue purple color on this one. It says statue. The one I painted seems to have a gray brown color patina if I read the photo right. This is a great watercolor.

    1. Thanks, Carlene...General Corse Statue does appear to be the color you depicted, but yours looks more polished and pretty!
