Vintage Enamalware Still Life – Peter Dee

Peter Dee selects his still-life objects with the same care as he selects the colours on his pallet. Much of the impact of his work derives from the contrast of colourful fruit with subtle variations of grey and white in the


Rainer Cherries are among Peter’s favourite subjects. The fruit can be red, crimson, orange, and yellow, with hints of purple in the shadows.

And there’s starkly contrasting green in the stalks. Getting the correct balance between these chromatic possibilities is not easy, even for an experienced painter. But, when the right harmonies are found, as in “Cherries Still Life”, the result can be stunning.
