Description 'Tiger Feet' is from an original coloured pencil drawing. Highly detailed, it shows a playful little tiger cub on his back. Because of the muted palette of colours used, I've kept the composition plain and simple, leaving space around the subject to give a little more impact, with just a little shadow to ground him. This charming and cheerful image will brighten up any room in the home or workplace. Measuring approximately 15.5 x 9.5 inches, this drawing is presented in a white mount within a distressed silver gilt frame to a total size of about 23 x 17 inches, ready to hang. It is signed on the front and will be accompanied by a certificate of authenticity.
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.
