Walter Holmes has been painting for 50 years. Following a formal education in earth sciences (Durham University and Imperial College, London), he studied art at various institutions, including Hammersmith and Chelsea Schools of Art and Newcastle University. Since his first one-man show in 1971 his work has been exhibited throughout the UK and is in private collections from the USA to Russia.
Like many outstanding artists Walter brings a unique energy to his paintings through his understanding of light. In a way, his paintings are the narrative of a life-long obsession with the action of light upon the substance of the world; it's effect on foliage and stone, on water, cloud and haze - even the blaze of the sun itself.
Works exhibited on Coloursoup include 3 landscape oil paintings of Northumberland, one painting of the Tyne Bridge in Newcastle, and a painting of shipping at North Shields. Walter Holmes' paintings can be found at http://www.coloursoup.com/
