Description 'Boy's Toys' is a coloured pencil drawing on Bristol board. A close up portrait of the characterful face of a British Bulldog chewing on tennis balls beside a Danger Mouse toy. As well as my usual high level of detail which can only be obtained by working on Bristol board or a similarly hard and smooth surface, this composition displays a healthy dash of humour too. Nobody has looked at this drawing so far without smiling. I believe it would suit any room in the house regardless of whether you are a dog lover or not.
Peter Williams, Leiston Member Since June 2010 Artist Statement Working out of my studio on the Suffolk coast, I express myself using a broad spectrum of media including graphite pencil, coloured pencil, charcoal and pastel. However I am best known and respected as a watercolourist, pushing the boundaries and achieving a unique vibrancy unequalled by many others.
My wide portfolio of subject matter includes traditional landscape, seascape, wildlife, portraiture and highly detailed illustration, even some still life.
I've been and still am influenced by many predominantly unknown contemporary artists, people who have perfected certain techniques and styles of work which are instantly recognisable as their own. I have worked hard to learn these technical skills, experimenting and developing methods a little further to produce my own style. First and foremost though, I try to portray emotions and inject a spiritual atmosphere into my work which may take the viewer to another place, far beyond that of a photograph or straight hyper-realism.
