About Me



Hi. My name’s Pete. I’m a self-taught  artist living and working in Cornwall UK. Originally from Staffordshire, I moved to Cornwall in 1997 with my job as a Telecoms Engineer. Now retired, I took up painting again after a long period of inactivity. I first laid brush to paper in the 70’s when I bought a small book by the artist John Blockley on watercolour. Although I’ve been painting for many years, there have been massive gaps in between sessions due to other commitments – mainly work related. The last time I painted before was 2003 – many years ago! I took early retirement from the Telecoms industry in 2014. Artists I admire are – Geoff Kersey, Terry Harrison, John Blockley, Ron Ranson, David Bellamy and Rowland Hilder amongst many others. I particularly love the contra-jour styles of Joseph Zbukvic, Alvaro Castagnet, Thomas Schaller. I paint mainly in watercolour, but I also use acrylics, pastels and oils from time to time.

I now have a YouTube channel where I post demonstrations and tutorials on watercolour painting. If you are interested in the process of painting then pop along to YouTube to see what I get up to.

Thanks for your interest.

Happy painting everyone.
