Walter Holmes reviews
"I and my family have several of Walter's paintings. They are skillful, accurate portrayals of his subject matter, but what is special is the atmosphere that surrounds it. His water and sky scenes are special. One can feel the waves, and smell the air." Mr. & Mrs. S.
"I love the delicate use of colours in all of Mr Holmes's paintings. I am not an Art Expert - indeed far from it so I only buy what I find pleasing to the eye and relaxing to the mind. Walter Holmes paintings fulfill all my criteria". Mr. S.
"We do not buy art very often, but our favourite is Walter Holmes. We have a number of his prints, the quality of which is excellent, but in addition we have some original oil paintings.
In fact, Walter's art is well received not only on the walls of our home, but also in my office. I now live "down South", but his paintings of the North East in particular are a welcome tug on the heart strings." Mr. B.
"Walter accepted a commission to create two paintings of a fine Northumbrian property and landscape. The architectural landscapes he created offering different views of the same building in different seasons, are quite simply stunningly beautiful.
We commissioned the paintings as a retirement gift for our Chief Executive. As the commissioner, I was truly delighted with the quality and value for money. The person to whom we presented the paintings was thrilled." Mr. R.
"I have admired Walter's paintings immensely ever since I first saw his beautiful work at Collier's Gallery in Newcastle quite a few years ago. I relate totally to Walter's love of the Northumberland and North East Coastline and admire his natural affinity with the wonderful light that we Northerner's are lucky to experience. All of his work creates a glimpse into another bygone world, transporting familiar, well-loved views into timeless beautiful pockets of light and colour. I love marine art with a passion and for me it succeeds when it has the ability to stop you in your tracks. For me, Walter's beautiful and atmospheric work has always done this. Not only does he create something extraordinary out of the ordinary but he also paints with absolute skill and artistry. I would wholeheartedly recommend Walter's work to all who appreciate fine painting in every sense." Ms. S.
"Walter is a world class artist who's landscapes particularly of Northumberland and Venice are in a a beautiful classical style. Works of this calibre are rarely seen nowadays so much so his reputation is Nationwide, not just in the North East I am always lost in admiration when I view his work and would recommend it to everyone, not just the aficionados." Mr. S.
"Walter has produced some bespoke pieces of art for me and I am delighted with them. He captured the emotional essence of the subject in a way which is so rarely seen in my opinion." Mr. C.
"It is a pleasure to have Walter's work on the wall." Mr. P.
