New England Seascapes Oil Paintings

Updated on April 11, 2013

Seascape & Landscape Oil Paintings by William Nihill

William has been involved in art his entire life. His adult artwork has ranged from seascapes and landscapes, particularly New England scenes, to portraits of homes and murals.

William is a member of the Duxbury Art Association, often contributing to the yearly juried shows. In 2006, he was presented with an honorable mention for best oil in show from the Duxbury Art Association. He also won 2007 Best Pembroke Artist from the Pembroke Arts Festival in Massachusetts. He has been represented by galleries in Falmouth, MA and Newport, RI.

Currently William sells through private commissions and this site. Oils are the artist's choice for medium, while using acrylics on the murals.

Through his artwork, William tries to inspire, relax, and captivate the viewer, focusing on the everyday surroundings, transforming them into something that will introduce the beholder to a greater appreciation for the complexities of nature and life.

This piece, titled "Race Point, End of Summer," was a long journey to create. Race Point is on the very tip of Cape Cod, Massachusetts in Provincetown. This part of town is very remote, with only rolling sand dunes, and an almost desert-like environment. The lighthouse is about 2 miles off the road, accessible only by walking to it.

The lighthouse is barely visible from the road, but I could tell it would make a great painting. After walking down the 2-mile path, I arrived at the lighthouse. I wasn't disappointed. From the perspective of the painting, if you looked behind you, there would be the ocean. I took some excellent shots to use for my paintings, admired the scenery, then headed back down the 2-mile path.

Pictures were taken in mid-Septmber, and the painting was completed a few months later. The medium was oil, on 9x12 canvas. This painting captures the warm day that I walked to Race Point, and reflects the subtle blending of autumn and summer sunset hues over the tranquil light station.
