In 1924 Walter Battiss spent his leisure hours painting the surrounding landscapes in a descriptive realism style and signed his work WW Battiss.

In 1940 Battiss's previous realistic painting style begins to acquire hieratic, symbolistic character also works on woodcuts.

In 1962 he began exhibiting many paintings employing palette-knife colour mixing with graffito delineation of forms.
