Darwin’s Finch

£30.00

Charles Darwin’s great passions may have been beetles and barnacles but I don’t think it is easy to escape what importance a group of birds from the Galapagos islands would play on his life’s work.

Captured in this digitally illustrated artwork is a member of Darwin’s finch family, perched on a well used notebook and beneath them is the great naturalist’s breakthrough work, On the Origin of Species.

Made from nearly 50 layers, this 8×8”, limited edition (run of 50) print is finished on a textured fine art paper, a paper that delivers a rich textured finish with an archival quality.

The artwork is signed and numbered on the front and arrives sealed and backed with mounting board.

This artwork comes with a Certificate of Authenticity, signed by the artist.

Peter Walters

“Between the pages of a book is a lovely place to be”...and for artist Peter it is so much more. Binding his creative talent and love of literature, Peter has established a literary inspired portfolio shared with book lovers and art fans across the globe. With a background in portraiture, Peter spent his formative years in America and The Netherlands, before a return to the UK coincided with a transition to digital art. This merging of traditional illustration with digital art has seen Peter hone a style whose “mix of textures adds an eye-catching dimension to his vibrant collages.” (Publisher's Weekly) Through his work as an illustrator and children's author, Peter is continuously reminded of the lasting impression works of literature can have on people of all ages. Working from his studio in beautiful North Cornwall, Peter takes great pleasure in creating affordable art that can strengthen this bond.
