Peter's World

"A Day's Rest"

Part of a new range of pastels which I've created to evoke a nostalgic feeling, with subtle tones & vintage style framing. Available on metallic canvas which is created from an optimal blend of metallic, silver & pearlescent surface finishes to portray exceptional detail. I love it!

"Sometimes what you think is going to be the best composition, isn't always so. Such as this crisp spring morning at Lake Alexandrina. I initially sought a wide panorama & positioned myself further up the hill, gradually freezing as I waited for the sun to rise! Once it did, I captured several wide views & thought that was it. But as I walked past these dinghies, the early light was igniting the grasses & just kissing the boats, so I knew this was my best image - by far! This is the first of my pastel series, a timeless range which reminds me of scenes captured during the 50's & 60's. Back when the pace was more leisurely & life a lot simpler!"

“When Peter delivered our pieces, we couldn't believe the incredible detail. The images on his website - impressive as they are - really didn't do our prints justice!“
