Peter produces most of his work using a unique limited pallet. He utilizes only five colours to create all the visual detail and excitement within his paintings. Choosing not to use black in any of his work. Instead, dark colours are achieved with a combination of primary colour and burnt umber to achieve rich deep tones in the shadows of his work. A technique he learned in his formative years as an artist.
