Peter Weatherill Personal pages
I USED TO HAVE A FEW PAGES ON THE END OF THE OLD PENCIL TOPICS WEBSITE, BUT WHEN THE NEW SITE WAS SET UP OVER A YEAR AGO, THE PERSONAL PAGES WERE LEFT OUT. They do give me a chance to post up more recent pictures and also pictures painted in other media You may find them interesting
Many years ago, I first started off painting in soft pastel.  I then moved on to acrylics, watercolours mixed media, then pencils of all types and - more recently back to pastels and pen & wash. I will load up some images for now, and when I get time I will add some explanations and tell you what the subjects are and when they were done. December 2018

For those of you who have an interest, the Internet site and photo sharing group ‘Paint my Photo’ enables artists to source reference photographs from files supplied by photographers and other artists without the need to concern themselves over copyright.  I have used a number of resources from that site in the past, and over 500 of my own photographs are posted up on Paint My Photo for other artists to make use of.  Not everyone can easily access the scenes and subjects they want to paint, and references of this sort that are unrestricted by copyright are a great help.
