Peter Blakesley Bio

I am an established artist based in Devon.

I love the challenge of painting varied subjects, from landscapes to portraiture and semi abstract pieces. I consider myself privileged to be surrounded by beautiful natural geography, and the moors and seascapes feature heavily in my work.

My talent is expressed mainly in Watercolours, Oils, and recently Acrylics, and I enjoy how varied these mediums are and deciding which will best reflect what I want to achieve. The effect of different brushstrokes and the use of a palette knife is often evident in my paintings, and the looseness of my work translates a mood or feeling. I relish the challenge of working for weeks on a large oil painting as well as more instant results with smaller watercolours and acrylics.

I pride himself in research and personalising my commissions, and many of my buyers are avid followers, and repeat clients.

I am a leading member of the Torbay Guild of Artists and have exhibited across the South West, and won many accolades in local exhibitions, including “Best Painting in Show”, and being a finalist in the Devon Life Landscape Artist of the Year.

Examples of my work can be found on my website, Facebook and Instagram.
