My Indian Travels, 2013
In October 2012 Peter was asked by fellow painter and friend Patrick Cullen if he would like to join him and 4 others on a trip to India. Although Peter always prefers to work alone he thought he would give it a go. In February 2012 he joined his colleagues for 6 days. He found it hugely inspirational and a year later returned with 3 of the original group and 3 others this time for two weeks. Fascinated by the life of Udaipur, the ‘Lake City’ of Rajasthan, he set up in the frenetic city streets painting through the days and enjoying rooftop meals, beer and conversations with his fellow travellers at night. The three weeks he spent there chronicled in the 56 paintings and his sketch book notes culminate in this exhibition and accompanying book My Indian Travels. A further 10 oils will be shown in a group exhibition with Ken Howard, James Horton, Patrick Cullen and George devlin at the Tryon Gallery from 14th May – 31st May.
