Original painting in mixed media on canvas.
"I use a carefully layered combination of Watercolour Ink, French Chalk with Linseed Oil, Oil Paint and Copper Inks. I work from paper sketches made en plein air and often take canvases to the location to lay down the watercolours. I then finish the painting and layering of mixed media in the studio. A recent walk in the summer took me around the coast of the Lleyn Peninsula in North Wales. One of my favourite parts of the Wales Coastal Path with spectacular beaches, light and terrain."

Peter Kettle has recently been voted in as a Fellow for the Royal Society of Arts (FRSA).
Peter Kettle’s work has the surfaces of well-worn exterior walls, buffeted and corroded with the appearance of having withstood the effects of time and weather – a technique that gives his work an enlivening combination of stoicism and nostalgia.
