William Michael Yenkevich paints in the Traditional Realist Style using the academic approach of the Old Masters of the 15th thru 19th centuries. He is gifted with an innate understanding of form, color, design, perspective, and proportion. Light is his muse and the Old Masters no doubt his inspiration. There's a certain intimacy and pastoral ease in Yenkevich's paintings.
