‘I paint these scenes to bring a sense of peace into people’s homes and to remind us how beautiful Victoria’s coastline is.’ A multi-skilled artist Pete paints seascapes and has had many successful exhibitions around Melbourne, Australia.
Pete’s painting was chosen as a finalist in the inaugural SBS Landscape competition in 2019 and for the ‘People’s Choice’ award from a collection of 120 artist’s work at the Pink Lady Art Exhibition 2010.
Pete is based in Melbourne. He paints acrylic seascapes from around the State of Victoria. Pete uses acrylic paint for the vibrant natural colours. Coming from a watercolour background, his use of semi-transparent washes over stronger colours suggest light and depth. The fast drying nature of the medium keeps Pete moving and helps give his paintings a fresh sense of immediacy. Pete’s free washes of clouds and water contrast with his fine detail of the yachts and beaches. The resulting realism, combined with the natural style and keeps the eye moving to the different points of focus.
PLEIN AIR PAINTINGS – See all currently available Plein air Paintings here
Painted on the beaches and beside creeks , these small paintings are a snapshot of the day. Full of texture, colour and mood. Often these small plein air paintings become the first step to a Studio painting offering Pete a portal to the time to when it was painted and the ‘feel’ of the day and location.
