Drawings and paintings made outside in pen and watercolour, of houses, historic buildings, sea and land. This show includes new work from Portobello, focusing on the Promenade, beach and High Street.
Peter works outside observing the subject in front of him, whether sea, sky, building or townscape. Working in watercolour, which is portable and immediate, the house drawings begin with pen and line, spontaneously drawn and then coloured with a single watercolour wash. Whilst sparing, these house portraits include the details that describe the building and show their character and the character of the people within, the drapes and ornaments in the window, the plant pots and garden furniture, the brightly coloured doorway. Portobello and Joppa is rich in these characterful buildings and is a constant source of inspiration.
Peter shows his work at the High St Gallery in Kirkcudbright and at The Velvet Easel in Portobello, and regularly undertakes private commissions. Corporate clients include The Weir Group, Scottish Field Magazine and the Britanny Tourist Board.
During the second weekend of the Art Walk, on Sat 9th Sept, 2-4pm, Peter will be painting outside from one of the Art Walk 'art carts' situated on the Prom.
