Ducks at Hartley Wintney

Limited Edition Prints | 33 x 25cm (100): £120
This painting epitomises the saying ‘being in the right place at the right time’. I was sitting at 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. I really enjoyed painting the multiple reflections of the trees on the water. I used several layers of paint, always working wet on dry. I used a variety of brushes, and many different brush strokes to achieve the desired effect.

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 & 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 Surrey Artists site and in the Gallery of my website. I am also available to undertake commissioned work.
In 2012 I will be offering art lessons - further details below.
So feel free to contact me if you would like to make a purchase, discuss a commission or join one of my art classes.

Nicholas Walsh from Hartley Wintney Hampshire is a member of Farnham Art Society 


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.
