Contemporary art - Peter McArdle, English painter

"I always paint with oil on canvas, which I prime and sand several times with gesso for a smooth surface. I sketch out in pencil and use a 000 (cat's whisker) sable brush to refine and define the sketch. Then I underpaint with burnt umber and glaze on top of that several weeks later - up to seventeen glazes. Paintings take six to nine months as an average. Usually a painting changes drastically in the last three or four months. At the final stage I reject around a third of the paintings." (stuckism.com)
In 2003 he founded The Gateshead Stuckists group as "a response to the Baltic's nihilism", and was exhibited at the Stuckism International Gallery. (wikipedia)
