Peter Smith is a landscape artist, harbouring a love of landscapes since early childhood growing up in rural Victoria. Moving to Tasmania in 1970, he was able to enjoy the beauty and diversity of the unique and changing landscape, capturing the mood and colour through his sketchbook and easel. Painting in oils, Peter considers his painting style to be impressionistic, relying on the colours and textures of the paint to convey the feeling of place. Working mainly with a palette knife allows him to create texture for a greater feeling of depth. Through his art, Peter hopes to remind us of all of nature’s beauty that we are often destroying or too busy to enjoy.
