Pete works with Oil on Canvas and Mixed Media on Paper. The Oil pieces are concerned directly with the making process and how the paint reacts within subtractive and additive methods. These take time as there is an allowance for the layering process. The Oils are subjected to dilution with linseed oil and the viscosity altered with coldwax. The Mixed Media pieces draw on the landscape as the starting point and have their origins within drawing. The Mixed Media works feature a collaboration between such materials as ink, acrylic, emulsion paints, oil – both paint and pastel, graphite and at the time whatever feels the most appropriate to be using.
