Peter Whitcombe


My desire is to create paintings that people want to stop and look at because they are both interesting and “pleasing to the eye.” That means paintings that are realistic rather than abstract or impressionistic and more "photographic" but with the greater depth of feel that a good painting should give.

My focus continues to be landscape paintings of various and diverse scenes from around this beautiful country we live in. I am seeking to extend myself by painting a variety of scenery from farmlands to waterfalls and to iconic New Zealand destinations.

I paint in oils and acrylics and I have painted on stretched canvas, especially prepared board and latterly, on high quality, archival grade, museum quality canvas which is mounted on especially prepared board.

All my paintings are sealed with archival grade varnish which preserves the paint and keeps the colour while ensuring that the painting is easy to clean.

I prefer to frame my paintings either in the white frame that is custom made or in high quality timber frames that are chosen to fit the colour and style of each painting.

Commissions are welcomed.
