ARTISTS
Gordon Wallace
Talented and knowledgeable artist of many mediums with a BSc in computer animation and digital art.
Born and raised in Scotland, I have been drawing since about 5 years old. By high school I had developed an interest in science and history, as well as art. As a result I am someone who is not afraid of a paintbrush, pencil or screwdriver. I have made and designed animations, videos, books, posters, and written various things fiction and non-fiction.
I have learned a lot of things about many things, from aardvarks to ZZ Top, and I'm willing to pass on what I learned to anyone who is interested.

Examples of my work can be viewed here - https://gordonwallaceart.blogspot.com/

Gordon Wallace is available for private bookings

Available on most weekends from 10am to 6pm. But other times can be arranged.
Drawing, painting, photography, filmmaking, creative writing, animation, graphic design, etc.
If a service is not listed, just ask. I might be able to do it.

Title or Location: The Valley Beyond
I almost threw this away. Sometimes I have a hard time "pushing through" a painting that I am doing. I'm tempted to stop and say "this is not good, I won't finish it, it's awful". I painted the sky background a year ago and the painting just sat in a corner. One day I decided to just "play" with this piece of paper and I loved what happened! Quite often I find that I need to let my artwork just cook in a corner. Every once in a while I surprise myself!

Title or Location: Los Sue?os Sonoran
I use my small watercolor kit to document the places I experience while traveling and working on tje road. I was able to spend most of the winter in Arizona, spending time in the unique Sonoran desert. Where each saguaro cacti has its own personality within the Sonoran's surreal landscape.

Raleigh Watercolor Group
2024-02-27
Title or Location: Lone Oak
After I had joint replacement surgery on my left thumb, my dominant hand, I still wanted to paint. I thought that I'd just play with color using my right hand to wield the brush. To my amazement, I painted with more spontaneity and with a looseness I've been trying to achieve before. Maybe I'm ambidextrous and have only just discovered it (I'm 76).

Title or Location:
Inspired by the beautiful sunny shores of San Diego, CA. I love hiking the trails to easy my mind and rejuvenate. May one find a place to R&R. Watercolor, cold press paper 18 x 24.

Cardiff Watercolour Group

Title or Location: Twilight in Penarth
I used to live in Penarth, and find it an interesting town by the sea, with lovely shopping, eclectic coffee shops, parks, and of course the wonderful pier. I am also fascinated by the wonderful lamps in Britain and beyond, their history and intricate designs. Hence this lovely lamp, taken from its neighbours, to stand proud and alone, but with the outline of the pier behind to illustrate its context of Penarth.
