DescriptionAn expressive and vibrant watercolour study with oil pastel depicting the North Twist stream, 'Wallabrook' - the name of four different streams on Dartmoor, England.

Well presented in a double card mount and gilt effect frame. Signed. On wove.
Minor damage to the lower left corner of the frame, with minor marks and dents to other areas of the frame. Otherwise in fine condition.

We acquired a collection of works on paper by well listed British artist, Richard Ian Bentham Walker, direct from the artist's estate. The artworks have a wonderfully playful quality where Walker has applied the paint with large, gestural brushstrokes. The collection includes watercolour landscapes, portraits and still lifes including On The Isle Of Herm and the Channel Islands. Many of the artworks have been signed by the artist.
