Lisa: In terms of your painting, how has 2017 been for you? Have there been any notable highlights?
Peter: It has been a year of painting trips. I discovered New York in March (when it was 20C on the Wednesday and -7c on the Sunday!), The French Alps, Hoi An City, Vietnam on a ‘paint with Pete The Street’ trip, a second hot trip to New York in Jume, Cabris in the South of France, and then closer to home, Scarborough, Edinburgh and forays to Devon and Dorset. I also managed to squeeze in painting at Glastonbury and a lovely new festival: Samphire in Porlock, North Somerset. But in between these trips I was working on my show of London and East Anglia which opened on 6th December this year. As for highlights – hard to pin point exactly – I absolutely loved painting on the streets of New York but discovering East Anglia for the first time was a revelation. Painting the alps – the scale of the landscape and the beauty of the snow and then Hoi An – what a great city – the hot busy markets and streets filled with really lovely people.. and Glasto – sublime!
