Painting landscapes and seascapes in an impressionistic style, Peter paints in oils with a palette knife to create texture. For Peter it’s all about “capturing the light” to create a feeling of place
I have enjoyed the beauty of art for as long as I can remember. I came to creating art as the family grew and I had more time to explore the wonderful creative journey that art is. I work with a palette knife and luscious oil paints to create texture and feeling in my paintings.
I live in Hobart, Tasmania, painting mainly landscapes and seascapes. All my paintings are professionally framed to suit the painting and are ready to hang.
During travels through Europe I attended workshops in France – with Michel Cribelier at Giverney and Frederique Leclercq at Gisors. I have also attended lessons with some of Australia’s top oil painters. As a mature age student, I completed a Diploma of Visual Arts.
Painting mainly landscapes and seascapes, to me painting is all about “capturing the light”. I take my inspiration from the sensation of colour, light and shade expressed so beautifully by the Australian Impressionists. I paint with a palette knife in an impressionistic style, creating texture to convey the feeling of light and depth.
Today’s landscape has become saturated with the signs of our modern society – and I want to remind us all of the beauty of nature we are often destroying or too busy to enjoy.
