Peter Jones House Portraits

Peter Jones is an artist based in Portobello, Edinburgh’s seaside. His work focuses primarily on buildings and place and has been published in a series of small books celebrating the buildings of Kirkcudbright, Portobello, Falkland in Fife, and Craigmillar & Niddrie. His paintings are characterised by quirky lines and fresh, bright watercolour washes, spontaneously drawn and mainly produced in situ, with the subject in front of him. This passion for working outdoors, where the buildings’ colours, character and details can be seen most clearly, takes him also into the landscape.

Falkland today ***it's a winter wonderland*** perfect for a snowy walk, maybe followed by a Bounty hot chocolate at the Stables where you can catch my trees exhibition while warming up. Snow on Falkland Estate today - looking beautiful!
Sycamore - they're a particularly abundant source of food and habitat for wildlife. Trees are giving all the time, a lesson in life for us mere humans. It's National Tree Week, and a sheer fluke that my trees exhibition in Falkland opened this week too. This watercolour of a Sycamore is for sale, and is also available as a print. Or you can see it in Falkland for free at the Gallery at the Stables, Falkland Estate, open daily 10am-4pm until 22 December

I've just found out it's National Tree Week! I'm late to the party, we're 2 days in, but it does feel like synchronicity. I'll bet trees know a thing or two about that. And it's 50 years since 'Plant a tree in '73!' Here's a tree from my current exhibition in Falkland, I'm still not sure what kind it is. Can anyone enlighten me?

I found a box of these! Thought they'd sold out. Portobello has changed a fair bit in the 5+ years since the paintings in this book were made.
If you'd like a copy, they'll be available tomorrow (Thursday) 5-8pm at Tribe Porty, 19 Windsor Place.
50% of proceeds from our pop sale will be donated to the International Committee of the Red Cross working in Gaza.
Also beautiful small paintings by Jude Nixon and gorgeous handmade slipware pottery by Michelle Lowe.
Why not start your Christmas shopping here? Hope you can join us 🙂
