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,

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
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
