Welcome / Croeso - My name is Chris Chalk and I am a full time professional Welsh artist with 10 years experience working from my artists studio in Pembrokeshire West Wales. On this website you will find a extensive gallery of original oil paintings for sale, as well as limited and open edition giclée prints for sale. Predominantly a landscape artist specialising in landscape paintings of Wales and the UK, I also paint wildlife art and pet portraits. I paint exclusively in oils, and all of the original paintings for sale on this website are oil paintings.
"I am delighted with the landscape paintings which represent a great example of your skill and artistic talent. They also remind me so much of happy times spent in Pembrokeshire West Wales many years ago."
""Hi Chris, Jackie loved her pet portrait painting of Ben. I managed to get it framed in a black wood grain chamfered frame, before Christmas and I wrapped it in gift wrap with another photo of Ben all over it; to make it an extra special gift. See attached photo of Ben with his Mum."
"We love the painting Chris, we've hung it in the bedroom for now, but we're going to hang it above the fire in the lounge as soon as we've made room."

Painting in Pembrokeshire

Using Watercolour Outdoors

Welsh Plein Air Painting
Painting with friends on a beautiful summer's day at Llanerchaeron near Aberaeron in west Wales.
Although the majority of my larger oil paintings are painted at home in my art studio, I spent a good deal of time out in the British countryside gathering reference material, making preparatory sketches and trying out ideas as smaller scale oil paintings using my pochade box or as watercolours in my sketchbook, back at my Welsh art studio I then work these field sketches into finished pieces.
