Peter J. Ripley has been painting for 55 years. He studied Commercial Art at Central Tech in Toronto and has also completed courses at the Ontario College of Art & Design.
Peter’s chosen medium is transparent watercolour and he enjoys working wet in wet. Winter scenes, he finds, are conducive to the medium but also works in acrylic.
Landscapes of the Muskoka area are what primarily inspire Peter and he spends most of his time painting in his studio, located in Foots Bay in Muskoka. He also paints scenes of Europe.
Peter has shown his paintings at The McMichael Art Gallery in Kleinburg, Waterfest in Midland ,Cobourg Art Festival,Pelham Art Festival,Kawartha Art Festival,Rideau Valley Art Festival and Muskoka Arts and Crafts of which he is a member.He also does commissioned work
