About William Underwood

Underwood holds a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from Eastern Kentucky University (major in painting, minor in drawing), studied life drawing at the Louisville School of Art, and taught art fundamentals as a graduate assistant at Southern Illinois University. In 1995, he obtained a Master of Arts degree from the University of South Florida, and from 1999 to 2001 completed a two year stint as an adjunct drawing and design instructor at a local college. He was the figure drawing instructor at the Gulf Coast Museum of Art in Largo, Florida for many years.

Underwood's work runs the gamut from traditional black and white pencil landscapes to portraits of people and animals, along with several featuring a fantasy twist. Besides graphite pencils, you will see works in color pencils, charcoal, and most recently scratchboard.

In a scratchboard drawing, the lines are created using a small knife to scratch into the black inked surface of a hardboard panel, exposing a white coating underneath. Each scratch becomes a thin white line. The process is the opposite from pencil or ink drawing, since highlights are drawn, and shadows are left dark. If I choose to add color, special inks are brushed on near the end of the process.

Underwood is currently displaying and selling his award winning art at some of the most prestigious shows in Florida.
