NEW Classes and Workshops!

Beginning in December 2015, I will be teaching classes and workshops at The Button Factory Arts.

Learn to paint landscapes

This 6-week course will help you enhance your landscape paintings, and learn new ways to interpret the wonders of nature whether you are a realist or an abstract artist. We will cover many different mediums and styles from sketching, pen & ink, watercolour to acrylic paint. This workshop is designed for beginner level artists who already have a grasp on painting fundamentals and intermediate level artists who wish to learn new skills. Ralf Wall is a professional landscape artist who primarily paints out in various locations throughout Southern Ontario and has an established reputation as a plein air artist in Kitchener-Waterloo region.

Wednesdays 7pm – 9pm
From December 2nd 2015 – January 13th, 2016 (no class December 23rd, 2015)

$115 BFA Members / $132 non-members

Now offering Gift Certificates

Just a quick note to let you know that on the suggestion of a few great friends (who already purchased these) I am now offering Wallhalla Gift Certificates. Perfect for weddings, anniversaries or birthdays when you can’t decide which work of art to give.

Also, I’m pleased to announce that we can now accept VISA, MasterCard and American Express at all our art shows, events and gallery shows. I have signed up with SQUARE and can swipe credit cards via my cell phone through a secure connection.

1st Place at the Brush Off

The Brush Off at the Button Factory (July 25th, 2015) was a great event. I ended up in 1st place and together with the 2nd place winner Nancy Peng, we will represent Waterloo at the Brush Off at TheMuseum in January, 2016. Check out some of Nancy’s work – she is really talented and I love her art.

Here are the paintings that I did at the event.

First round was open to the artist.


Second round was themed “Zen”


Third round was themed “Energy”


Brush Off at the Button Factory

I will be participating in The Brush Off at the Button Factory this Saturday July 25, 2015. I love the brush off, 30 minutes to create a painting and you don’t even know the theme until it starts. Such a great challenge!

Come on out and support your favourite artist (hopefully that’s me) :D

Tickets are still available here:!/The-Brush-Off/p/51449160/category=8719082

Live painting demo this weekend

Just a quick note to let you know, that together with The Bright Blue Door, I will be doing a live painting demo at the Creative Waterloo Pop-up Shop at the Shops in Uptown Waterloo. Come on down Friday July 17th and Saturday July 18th, 2015 from 1-4pm (both days) and see me in action.

Raflar now at The Bright Blue Door

Just a quick note to let you all know I will be hosting Art Drop In Days every Tuesday from 12-6pm. $10 let’s  you use this open concept studio and work along side other artists, feeding off of each other’s creative energy and learning from each other. Plus the added benefit of getting away from all other distractions.

Also, some of my paintings are now available as prints at the Bright Blue Door’s online shop – – currently there are only a few of my favourite acrylic pieces but I will be adding more each month.
