Peter creates such realism in his work, no matter what medium he uses and the thing that has always generated admiration is the fact that he is entirely self-taught. His talent is obvious, yet he does not appear in any way full of his own worth and is quite happy to take advice if he is struggling with any aspect of a particular piece. I feel as though I know him, since we have communicated on-line via several art forums over the past few years, yet I've never met him in person. I own a couple of his early watercolour paintings as well as a pencil portrait of me which he was using as a practice piece last year. I find it really hard to single out just one of his pieces as a favourite, but I suppose if I had to choose, these three would come fairly high up the ranking - especially as I am such an avid cat lover! These are available as giclee prints on Peter's website here.
