All weathers Pete!

While today’s foul weather (Tuesday, January 26th) was enough to keep most Bathonians indoors, there was no stopping an artist known as ‘Pete the Street’ from going about his business.

Peter Brown is a British impressionist painter – based in Bath – who got his nickname from his practice of working on location in all weathers.

Today he had set up his easel under the shelter of the colonnade at the Stall Street end of Abbey Church Yard and was busy depicting the wonderful reflective qualities of a wet paved surface stretching out in front of him.
