Concentrating on pencil and pen & ink focusing mainly on architecture, Peter Whyte-Venables began drawing in 1985.
His initial commissions were from Prince Charles, Princess Michael of Kent, Phil Collins and Mike Rutherford (of Genesis), Gladiator star Oliver Reed, ITN presenter Sandy Gall, and Hannibal Lector actor Anthony Hopkins (plus a few others only those Brits of a certain age would recognise, such as BBC newsreader Sue Lawley and BBC R1 presenter Simon Bates).
Typically he draws to order - everyone has their own favourite building, whether it's a palace they visited on holiday or the church in which they got married or even their own home. Peter has just embarked upon a collection of buildings of Jewish significance, initially in Warsaw, but eventually to include other Polish cities.
Peter is always pleased to discuss your ideas and needs. Feel free to contact Peter on firstname.lastname@example.org, (+48) 538 416 665, or visit his page on Facebook. https://www.facebook.com/pwhytevenables/
