Peter Watson


Peter Watson

‘The bit about me’ My name is Peter Watson, I studied art at Derby School of Art in 1973 under the tuition of professional artist, Harold Barklam. In 1974 I continued my studies at Derby College of Art, I then embarked on a career as a signwriter/screenprinter for a major retail company.

In recent years my passion for art as been rekindled and I am now creating work on a regular basis. My main subject matter is landscapes and coastline, and living near Ashbourne in the Derbyshire Dales, this gives me every opportunity to sketch and paint if a subject, mood and weather conditions inspire me.

Using mainly acrylics on either board or canvas, I like to work at speed to capture the moment in one session. This I feel creates a freshness and vibrancy to a painting that is not overworked. I hope you enjoy viewing my work
