Peter will talk about his marine paintings. He hails from Glasgow, Scotland and has been a long time resident of New Hope. Peter Hunt's paintings reﬂect his varied interests - landscapes, seascapes, industrial culture, street scenes and buildings of Bucks County. He has received many awards for his work and is active in the local art community, having served on the Board of Artsbridge and the Shad Festival Scholarship Committee. Peter was invited to participate in Plein Air Festivals at TELLURIDE 2008, WAYNE 2009 and HAVRE de GRACE 2010. Peter teaches plein air workshops and his Field Guide to Plein Air Painting may be downloaded from his web site, www.peter-hunt.com.
“I have a straitforward approach to painting. I am fairly traditional in my technique and I like to work from life. Whether it’s a painting of a couple of poppies or a quarry scene. When I paint outside, I try to capture the mood of the place and the lighting, which can be ﬂeeting. Usually, I have a two to three hour window to paint before the setting has completely changed. I don’t go for a high degree of ‘ﬁnish.’ I like to leave the viewer to ﬁnish interpreting the painting, it’s more interesting than if the painting is completely spelled out. Painting has made me more aware of my surroundings”.
