During 1938–45 Ball served with the Royal Artillery, and while the was never an Official War Artist the did complete many sketches and pictures of service life, with a strong vein of humour which runs through much of his work. From 1946–75 Ball taught at West Surrey College of Art and Design, at Farnham, where the died. Ball’s oils and watercolours reflect his interest in the daily life of ordinary people, busy with figures and alive with incident. Some are realistic, some more highly structured, reflecting such developments as Cubism and Futurism.
