“It makes for a most pleasurable working day, as I am not fazed by having onlookers watch and comment, which often happens when I am working outdoors”
– Peter Barraclough

Peter finds that folk love to watch him at work and to experience the process of creation from a blank canvas or sheet of paper to a finished piece. As he works, Peter explains why some marks he makes are working while others were not. While a knowledge of composition, technique, perspective and colour theory are all important, as an old painting lecturer at his art school in Liverpool in England used to emphasise, “Don’t forget the three-H principle: Heart, Head and Hand.”
When all three are working together, happiness reigns.
