Artist's description:

Peter sat for me and I was immediately struck by the contrast between an intense strength and an inherent softness in his countenance.
After drawing him many times, I took the charcoal sketches into my studio and started to paint him on canvass. The colours I used I felt were indicative of his character and skin tones, and paid homage to his Caribbean heritage. I emphasised the angles and sharpness of the shadows and used unusual colours in order to make a strong, vibrant portrait that would reflect in some ways his character.
