Meet our fantastic Artist Peter Cronin, self taught artist living in South Wales and turned professional in 2003 after a twenty-year career in structural engineering.
Peter is an elected member of The Royal Society of Marine Artists, the Royal Watercolour Society of Wales and the Pure Watercolour Society. So students can be assured of his credibility in his chosen painting medium. Peter believes in ‘actively’ teaching so his classes are full of critiques and advice, as well as analysis of established artists techniques and methods. He will demonstrate freely to explain a given method or technique but also believes that this information is there for the student to accept or disregard according to their own tastes and development.
He has developed his own unique teaching style and methods that ensure the classes are entertaining, whilst serious in their pursuit of artistic progress.
Peter is a traditionalist painting in oil and watercolour. When using watercolour Peter paints in the tradition of pure watercolour, using no gouache or acrylic, thus giving the luminosity of the medium full prominence. We are delighted that Peter teaches his skill for Vale Courses.
