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. My favourite mountain in Wales. Tryfan has an incredible impact on the Ogwen Valley by dramatically changing shape as you ramble along the side of the lake. It has a topography similar to that of the knuckles of a hand when viewed from the East and as you walk further West it winds into a traffic cone. Spent sometime climbing up and down Tryfan but it always looks best from afar."

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.
