Peter Bowen
Peter Bowen BA Graphic Design, MBA Marketing, is an accomplished graphic designer and professional watercolour artist. Educated at the former West of England College of Art where he studied Graphic Design. He fondly remembers his high school art teacher and mentor John Stopps RWA, who encouraged him to be a designer.
His unique style of painting architectural subjects with humorous situations has earned him an international reputation during the last 25 years with much of his work in private collections in Canada, the United States and Great Britain.
Ideas for pictures often start as a collection of ideas of things that I have seen and I create a composition in my mind that I think would work. "Often I start sketching directly on to watercolour paper with a fine pen, letting the lines do the work and form the framework of the picture". Colour elements follow and start to bring life to the work. Shading and tonal colour adds dimension to the framework of shapes.
