Peter’s paintings are rich in character with buildings set in landscapes with atmosphere, evoking a sense of isolation and solitude, each image is brought alive by his appreciation of the natural environment. Through his painting he has the opportunity to transform local scenes onto canvas capturing a snapshot of the land around him. Seascapes, mountains and characteristic buildings artistically unfold into sketches and then paintings. His understanding of colour and the application of paint effects are the hallmarks that make his paintings his own.

The palette knife, rather the brush ensures a precision of relevant detail brought to the eye of the observer. His subjects are unmistakably of the area he lives, and his bold and broad palette stokes give his work great fluidity and character. His buildings often have a leaning roof line or a miss-shaped window which give his painting a feeling of age and oldness.

 


  

 It is a county of constantly changing weather patterns and light and this is evident in the series of paintings he does through the year. There is a special quality to a land that is surrounded by the sea. The rugged weather worn hills, cliffs and beaches are a constant source of inspiration, as are the small ports and harbours that dot the coast. The Cottage at Pen Porth Clais is one of his most recent paintings which will be on display at the Albany Gallery where Peter has his next body of work on display. The Exihibtion is in April .

   


Several of his larger pictures have been put into print and are becoming highly collectable.
