Walter Porter

For more than twenty years Walter Porter worked as a successful commercial illustrator, painting for a list of clients that included America West Airlines, Arizona Highways Magazine, AT&T, IBM, Park Hyatt Hotels, U.S. West Communications and the U.S. State Department. Then, after two decades of painting exclusively in watercolor, Walter decided to learn the art of oil painting. In September of 2004 he picked up a paint box and brushes and hiked into the mountains surrounding Tucson to paint landscapes. Since then, Walter has spent the majority of his time painting en plein air (“in the open air”) but also produces larger landscape pieces in the studio using his plein air studies as reference. He also paints portraits, figurative paintings, western pieces as well as pursuing his life long love of drawing. His easygoing manner and willingness to share his artistic knowledge has made him a much sought after instructor. Walter Porter was born in 1952 in Chicago, Illinois. He attended Ripon College, The Art Institute of Chicago and the University of Arizona and currently lives with his wife in the Tucson Mountains just outside of Tucson, Arizona. He is represented by The Rogoway Gallery in Tubac, AZ.
