Tharston Church by David Talks

Watercolour of Tharston Church

by David Talks

The image above was shown to us by a local resident and it was thought that it typified the tranquil surroundings of St. Mary’s Church.

To ensure that we did not publish a picture without the artist’s consent, we contacted David Talks who has graciously given us his blessing to show this lovely watercolour on this site. He began painting in watercolour while teaching French and Russian at Gresham’s School, Holt and then at Rugby School.

Self-taught artist David Talks lives in Norwich and turned to painting professionally in 1988. He has painted widely in France, Italy and The Far East, though his first love has always been painting on the Norfolk and Suffolk coast and has exhibited with the Royal Institute of Painters in Watercolour, Royal Society of Marine Artists, and with Thompson’s Galleries, London and Aldeburgh, together with Mandell’s Gallery, Norwich. From 1998 - 2008 he held annual one man shows at the Galeries Lespinasse in Rouen, whilst also arranging exhibitions for the East Anglian artists in Rouen and for Rouen artists in Norwich as part of the Norwich-Rouen twinning link.

David is a past President of the Rugby and District Art Society, a former Chairman and President of the Norfolk Art Circle and a past member of the Coventry and Warwickshire Society of Artsists.
