Artist in Residence – Peter Baker ASGFA at Meeth Quarry

I wanted to reblog tis post from SGFA Journal that show cases the work of Peter Baker. I am so impressed by the pen and ink drawing. I have never seen anything quite like it using what I had thought to be a fairly limited media. It just shows what you can achieve with experimentation, hard works and skill. Beautiful work, very inspiring.

When Peter Baker moved to the village of Meeth in 2012 he found a muse at the bottom of his garden.

About Emma Perring

I am an artist working in mainly soft pastel at present.


  1. Hi Emma, me again, I thought that you might be interested to learn that your comments in the SGFA Journal inspired me to write an article on drawing with ink pencils and using my life drawings to illustrate the range of this new medium and to make the link between landscape and the human form. I do not know if it is any good but I have sent it to Cynthia anyway, she might be able to use it in the future! If you are interested, you can find this A3 artwork on my website although it all looks a bit dated now. I have browsed through some of your studies and think that your drawing shows great promise, keep up the good work and always experiment as ‘safe’ art teaches the artist absolutely nothing! Best regards, Pete.
