Peter Quinn: Voyages
October 15 @ 8:00 am - November 20 @ 5:00 pmFree
An exhibition of new paintings by Newcastle-based Royal Watercolour Society artist Peter Quinn.
Peter Quinn paints watercolour subjects that he finds on his travels. Attracted to the urban and the out-of-the-way, his paintings offer a brightly-coloured and personal response. Peter carries sketchbooks and a camera on his explorations. Often the subject presents itself immediately: a busy boat yard, an elegant avenue, a jumble of pots and plants on a doorstep or a packed shop display. Peter’s watercolours are produced back in his studio in Newcastle – first in the form of pencil drawings, followed by an admittedly haphazard and occasionally experimental painting technique.
