Hardy’s Goldfinch


This textured digital collage was inspired by a winter walk through the wild grounds of Minster’s Church, near Boscastle. It is a beautifully atmospheric area which resonates through some of Thomas Hardy’s finest writing. The words I took from this day though were from his short poem, ‘The Caged Goldfinch’, and in this artwork you will see, in over 30 layers, the words form our wistful goldfinch.
This 8×8”, limited edition (run of 25) print is finished on a Bockingford 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.

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.
