Varied Fine Art Painting & Drawing Categories
These include Architectural, Garden, Botanical, Portraiture and General - The selection on this site gives an indication of the varied work of the artist. More can be seen on his two websites (see the links above).
Reference for my work is either from life, photographs or a combination of both, whichever the occasion demands. Often many commissions are gifts and therefore a surprise, or maybe circumstances do not permit, so working with the subject matter is not all ways possible. In such cases a selection of images of the same subject is always a great help.
I use various media; oils, watercolour, pastel, acrylic, inks and pencil (monochrome). I enjoy texture in my work wherever possible along with detail and tend to be traditional in my approach. Commissions for some clients have been strongly impressionist and or using vivid colour allowing freedom in colour and form.
Small prints of Farnham and bird prints for children are available from The Frame Centre in Downing Street, Farnham. A collection of Limited-Edition Orchid Prints is also available. Initially, please go to walshsands.com and then contact me.
I cover all the major disciplines and a range of subject matter. Apart from sessional teaching, I am more than happy to give workshops and demonstrations to groups and societies.
