About The Artist

I took up painting seriously when I retired and moved to Dorset in 2009. I attend art lessons at the Studio Art School in Upwey once a week.

I enjoy painting landscapes most of all. I have travelled a great deal and take photos wherever I go. As well as Europe, I have visited Japan, India and Canada and I have painted many scenes from these countries.

I work from my studio in Weymouth and am fortunate to have the South West Coast Path virtually on my doorstep. This year, when travel has been limited, I have painted many more local scenes. A recent trip to Scotland provided additional material.

I like to experiment with various media and colours and have completed a number of abstract and semi-abstract works. If I succeed in painting a picture that is pleasing to the eye, I am satisfied.

About The Artist

With no encouragement to do art at school, despite winning first prize for my age group drawing the Black Horse for Lloyds Bank, I ended up in the City of London as an Investment Banker.

Going back to painting happened by accident, literally. A car accident forced me to stop horse riding and whilst recovering, I took up painting again, learning from various members of the Royal Academy of Art and the Royal Society of Arts.

Now my boys have flown the nest, that desire to paint has been unleashed. I have a love of portraiture, animals, birds and people but also explore abstract and landscape. Specialising in oils, I am driven by light and colour. The outdoors, particularly early mornings, the cool fresh air, gentle colours, rolling mists all provide inspiration for my work and the raw emotions that life presents are finding a release in abstract form.

Scarecrow at Hartley Wintney

I have always been intrigued by water and how the light distorts the colours reflecting from the surface. The pond in Hartley Wintney is full of wildlife, and is an ideal place to sit and contemplate. I wanted the scarecrow who stands there to appear alive, but not to the extent of frightening away the children! I was impressed as to how well preserved he was and well-dressed too.

About The Artist

I am a Fine Artist based near Hartley Wintney in Hampshire but I also spend a few months of the year in Marbella in Spain, where I paint on location.

I studied ‘visual communications’ and completed a foundation course in the late 1980’s - gaining a distinction at the Cardiff Institute of Art and Design. I then worked in London as an Art Director for a number of leading agencies, before deciding to concentrate on oil painting and pen and ink drawing. I have been classically trained and my style has been described as similar to that of the 'Impressionists'.

My paintings and drawings are for sale and can be viewed on this Hampshire Artists site and in the Gallery of my website. I am also available to undertake commissioned work.

I offer art lessons.

Art Lessons

I am in the process of setting up art classes in the evenings for the Fleet area of Hampshire in the UK, and also in Marbella in Spain. I will naturally be teaching adult students how to paint in oils, and will also be concentrating on developing their drawing techniques.

The objective of the courses will be to focus on individual requirements. Everybody has their own preferences regarding what they like to paint or draw. I will endeavour to improve a student’s skill level, so they become more confident and proficient.

I also will be organising groups to join me during some weekends drawing and painting landscapes on location.

If you would like to know more about these lessons please contact me on the numbers or email address above.

Ducks - Hartley Wintney Fine Artist and Art Tutor Nicholas Walsh

Ducks at Hartley Wintney

This painting epitomises the saying ‘being in the right place at the right time’.

I was sitting on the bank of the pond for a while, just watching and listening to the birds coming and going. After realising I wasn’t a threat, a pair of ducks came out of the water and passed by, right in front of me. The light was in a position to make the border between the pond and dry land indistinguishable.

About The Artist

I am based in Hampshire, a county full of variety for the artist, with coasts and marinas, ancient towns, the New Forest, and the start of the South Downs. There is plenty here to fire the imagination. Regular visits to the West Country, especially Somerset, inspire with it's own landscape and coastline.

My background in textiles has been a big influence, giving me a continuing interest in pattern and texture, resulting in the use of collage in much of my work. Favourite subjects vary from wildlife in a slightly mystical setting, to the bustle of urban spaces, or boats jostling in a local marina.
I hope that experimenting and trying new things will keep the work fresh, while sketching on location provides a break from working on finished pieces and is great for gathering information.
