A self-taught painter working largely in soft pastels, Peter likes to explore how a landscape changes in mood and aspect under different weather conditions and as the seasons succeed one another. 

The East Riding and Yorkshire Wolds provide Peter’s main inspiration just now; the Lincolnshire Wolds afford similar opportunities. Another favourite area for painting which features in the exhibition lies just south of Sheffield in NE Derbyshire between Ford and Marsh Lane.
