SCA, CSPWC, OSA
Although an avid amateur for years, painting was not Mr. Leckett's first career choice. A scientist by training and a software engineer in practice, since retiring Peter has consistently developed his painting and figurative skills. Part of this was his election into both the Canadian Society of Painters in Watercolour (CSPWC), the Society of Canadian Artists (SCA) and, recently, the Ontario Society of Artists (OSA).
An outdoor enthusiast, landscape seemed a natural choice of subject matter and the step to plein air painter a logical progression.
Peter works in acrylic. Starting outdoors if possible, he relies on aggressive brushwork to suggest detail. Judicious mark-making and a close observation of nature completes the process.
Recently, Peter has turned to painting full time.
