William Preston came to be considered a master sumi painter, locally as well as nationally. His works are prized by aficionados of the form and he was a sought-after teacher, known by his byline, Southwest Sumi Painter. He brought the sumi painting technique and his mastery of the brush to his 15-year oil painter’s experience with the Southwest —its wide open landscape, and flora and fauna.
