I met another of my favourite UK watercolour artists Peter Woolley at Patchings Art Festival in June 2013, and was very lucky to get this great interview with him. I really admire his style in his watercolor paintings, which we discussed in the interview.
Peter Woolley Artist was born in Derby in 1960 and was educated at Spondon Comprehensive School, where he received art tuition from the late Wilfred Ball. In 1982 Peter determined to pursue his interests in music and painting, however after a bad experience with a gallery which reinforced his desire to have as complete control over the sales of his work as possible, he held his first one-man exhibition at the Guildhall in Derby in February 1983.
After early experimentation with subject and medium, Peter settled for the pure watercolour style he now employs. He has now been painting full-time since December 1986.
