Anthony WallerAnthony is fascinated by nature and the landscape. He has had this interest since childhood and although he has had little formal training in art, his understanding and love of the countryside shines through in his work. He is able to capture atmosphere and the charm of light filtering through trees, the sparkle on the water and almost the fresh smell of an early morning by a river.
After leaving school he went on to join the R.A.F where he gained a commission as a fighter pilot and flew the early jet aircraft of the 1950s. In 1976 Anthony decided to make painting his full-time profession and retired from his business life in sales and marketing. His time is now spent painting, fly fishing, growing vegetables and playing golf or else he is in his workshop making furniture.
Until fairly recently he was best known for his atmospheric watercolours which have been exhibited in many galleries throughout the country including the Royal Institute of Painters in Watercolour. More recently though, he has been painting in oils and acrylics and is enjoying the different technique of working with thick buttery paint on canvas.
