    Brown rarely paints from reference in the studio, preferring to work directly from the subject on site in sometimes the foulest of weathers doing what he calls ‘see and put’. It was on the streets of Bath that he began to earn his living and it was here he earned the nick name ‘Pete the Street’.

    Sonning Lock is a lock and weir based at the village of Sonning near Reading, in Berkshire, along the River Thames. Originally built in 1773 – following an early ‘flash lock’ which dates back to the 1500s – the lock has been rebuilt three times in its history.

    Peter Brown first came to Bath for a year in 1986 to study an art foundation course. He went on to graduate from Manchester Polytechnic remaining a further two years working in a studio in Ancoats, an area just north of the city centre. He then studied a PGCE in FE in Eltham, London before giving up painting. Returning to Bath in 1993, inspired by the architecture and life of the town, he started to draw in charcoal moving back to working in oils three years later. And it was on the streets of Bath that Brown began to earn his living and it was here he earned the nick name ‘Pete the Street’.

    Brown paints a great deal across the UK – its cities, landscapes and coastline and in particular London. However, discovering new places has become more and more important and his painting has taken him further afield to India, Vietnam, Havana, USA and across Europe. He rarely paints from reference in the studio, preferring to work directly from the subject on site in sometimes the foulest of weathers doing what he calls ‘see and put’. Recently however, Brown has become more interested in interiors – of his home in Bath and elsewhere. Working in charcoal, oil paint and pastel, he has received numerous awards at various national exhibitions.

    Peter Brown is a member of the Royal Society of Portrait Painters, the Royal institute of Oil Painters, the Pastel Society, Bath Society of Artists and an honorary member of the Royal Society of British Artists.
