Alan Percy Walker’s career in art first arose in the early 1970’s with the writing of two novels and the production of a small collection of watercolour landscapes. The paintings sold; the novels did not. His writing took a back-seat while his painting increased in popularity and sold, mainly through private galleries – often one-man exhibitions – with much of his work going abroad.
He was first known primarily for his urban and marine landscapes, many of which have been published in books, calendars, magazines such as Country Life, and in the form of limited edition prints. A large body of his work in pen and ink has also been published in books and newspapers – Peterborough of the Daily Telegraph and others.
Control of perspective and observation of detail led to his being commissioned to paint a wide range of subjects, from small cottages to stately homes, from Cathedrals to The Royal Courts of Justice. His clients have included the National Trust, the Church of England, and various universities. He has been commissioned on 10 occasions to produce watercolours of Gold Medal winning gardens at the RHS Chelsea Flower Shows. In more recent years his trees and rural landscapes have become especially popular, also his paintings of ocean going yachts and ships in wild and turbulent waters.
