Paul Peel received his art training from his father from a young age. His first professional art teacher was William Lees Judson in his hometown and at the age of seventeen, between 1877-1880 at the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts under Thomas Eakins. He then went to London to study at the Royal Academy Schools for one year. The following year he moved to Paris where he received art instruction at the École des Beaux-Arts under Jean-Léon Gérôme and at the Académie Julian under Jean-Joseph Benjamin-Constant, Henri Doucet, and Jules Lefebvre.

In 1882 he married and had a son and a daughter who were his models in some of his art. In 1883, Paul Peel had his first oil painting accepted into the Paris Salon, a major accomplishment for a twenty-two-year-old.

Paul Peel traveled widely in Europe and throughout Canada, exhibiting as a member of the Ontario Society of Artists and the Royal Canadian Academy of Arts.
