Peter Laughton is continuously inspired by the complex interaction between sky, water and land…the boundless horizon that provides an intoxicating space for his imagination to roam. Laughton's paintings strive to capture the ever changing moods that light imposes on what he sees.
Since his early mixed media paintings, he has been experimenting with many different, sometimes non traditional approaches. Mixed media allowed him the most flexibility and range of expression. However, oil painting is the more challenging and has become his most satisfying medium. By incorporating the lessons learned from each medium, including digital, his approach is always exploratory as Laughton develops different techniques to achieve the effects he wants.
