Peter Doig's landscapes and painting process

Peter Doig is a prominent British painter whose work includes landscapes - which are not always related to Britain - often they relate to Canada where he was raised or Trinidad where he lives.

He broke auction records for a living European artist in 2007 when his painting White Canoe sold for $11.7million at Sotheby's.

This is a video of Peter Doig introducing his paintings in his exhibition exhibition at Tate Modern in 2008 and talking about the process of creating art.    This video comes recommended by me.

I've been intrigued by his work for a while and have started to try and find out more him and his approach to painting and landscapes.  If you're interested check out Peter Doig - Resources for Art Lovers - which is very much a work in progress at present.

Beautiful paintings and so interesting that he does etchings as part of his process.
