A new subscription option - Member - has been added to the Private Online Student Service.

For only £9 per month you can enjoy all the streaming video demonstrations available on the Student Service site.

This new option provides you with limited access to service features. Members are entitled to view all of the video demonstrations on the site, along with accompanying notes (when available). Projects and One-to-one Tuition are not available on this plan. Subscriptions are on a monthly payment agreement that may be upgraded to Student status, or cancelled at any time.


31/10/16: Demonstration Paintings added to Gallery

An exciting new gallery has been added to the site, featuring original work produced in demonstrations for art groups and during the many workshops that Peter runs.

As such, some are more 'finished' than others, have other sketches and demonstrations on their reverse or carry marks from having being used in a workshop environment; all are taking up valuable space in the studio, hence the bargain-basement prices.

All paintings are approximately 36cm x 27cm (14" x 11")
and available unframed and unmounted only for under £30! (Includes FREE POSTAGE in UK)

Visit the gallery and place your orders now!
