Peter Francis Garner (Fine Art)

I am a local artist who paints mainly, but not exclusively, landscapes in and around Harrogate, Yorkshire and the Lake District.

For many years I worked in watercolour, producing traditionally mounted and framed pictures and, about five years ago, I changed my style and, these days nearly all my paintings are in acrylic paint on 1.5Ē deep 3D canvas. These are painted around the edges and mounted directly, and simply, on the wall without a frame.

The style is more modern, the colours rather brighter, with a heightened sense of reality. I strongly believe in the rather old-fashioned virtues of composition, perspective and accurate drawing. However, I think a picture is basically a decorative panel to hang on the wall; it should have attractive colours, dramatic contrasts and a striking viewpoint.

All my paintings are original and I donít do prints or reproductions of any kind. However, they are surprisingly affordable and the pictures shown on the White Rose artistís website vary between £50 and £95 according to size.

I exhibit my paintings in the summer, along with the other artists in this group and the dates are shown on this website. If you would like any further information please contact me by email
