oil on canvas 100 x 100 cm
Plein air, direct observation and studio paintings are mainly in oils, with occasional use of other media; work ranges from life drawing and figure studies to formal portraits, with more expressive and creative approaches used in the landscape and still life pieces.
'Although themes are traditional, and Peter’s work is clearly representational, his approach often includes a bold use of media where subject and materials are combined in striking compositions’
