Peter's World

"Once Upon A Time"

Part of a new range of pastels which I've created to evoke a nostalgic feeling, with subtle tones & vintage style framing. Available on metallic canvas which is created from an optimal blend of metallic, silver & pearlescent surface finishes to portray exceptional detail. I love it!

“After capturing "Jackpot" of the rainbow & red tree up the valley on the same afternoon, I came across this rainbow over these ruins. Wow, I could hardly believe it! Moments like this are very rare & I only decided to retrace this route at the last minute. Sometimes that’s the best way - the less you plan, the more you let things just happen! 

The remote Nevis Valley was once teeming with gold miners, but today little remains of those golden years. You can just imagine the lives these crumbling walls were once witness to. Once upon a time!"

“When Peter delivered our pieces, we couldn't believe the incredible detail. The images on his website - impressive as they are - really didn't do our prints justice!“
