Biography Peter Loftus
Landscape painter Peter Loftus moved to California in the late 1970s in search of the ideal light for his plein-air watercolor and gouache works. Lower back troubles forced him to switch to painting with oils, which he could do while standing.
Loftus also began to do more work from photographs. Although his medium changed, Loftus continued painting his landscapes with the techniques he had developed while painting with watercolor.
Peter Loftus is a graduate of the Maryland Institute College of Art in Baltimore and the University of Pennsylvania where he was a student of Neil Welliver.
