About Walia Art Classes
Three key elements are fundamental for me: Light, Story, Beauty.
And my working methods honor the ideal of that inspiration: Most of my art is based on working directly from life
and always grounded in the fundamentals of classical art. I draw and paint the live model and study figure anatomy.
I continually paint the still life from life and particularly enjoy painting both the figure and still life.
I reference art of the Masters–both historical and contemporary–and have visited many of the art museums.
The natural world– its light and beauty and the stories told–is the stage. I am the audience.
