Annable - born in Nottingham and has lived for most of
his life in Nottinghamshire.
After two years at Mansfield Art College he took up a
career in graphic design. Since 1987 he has worked as
a freelance artist, taking on graphic design and illustration
work for industry as well as private commissions.
He works in both oils and watercolour, the latter being
his preferred medium. Peter enjoys painting from nature
and believes the spontaneity and freshness of sketching
on location is an invaluable experience when it comes
to producing work in the studio.
His railway subjects usually depict the final years of
steam with the muck, grime and atmosphere associated with
this period. He has also made numerous visits to sketch
and paint at Barry scrapyard.
Other than railway subjects, he is a keen landscape painter
and prints of his work are widely available throughout
