This Piece Is Numbered From A U.S. Edition Size Of 50. Paper Measures 12.5" X 19.5". Image Measures 8" X 14.5". Includes Certificate Of Authenticity From The Publisher, Washington Green. Unframed. Mint Condition. Peter Hildick Was Born In Twickenham, Middlesex, Just After The End Of The Second World War. During His Earliest Years Peter Drew On Any Surface He Could Find. His Techniques Developed Throughout His Primary Education Supported And Encouraged By His Family. The Family Moved To Bath In Somerset When He Was Eight And Peter Discovered A Love Of Wildlife In The Surrounding Countryside. Moving On To Secondary Education He Found That He Was Expected To Concentrate On Painting And His Drawing Was Discouraged. Other Than Occasionally Providing Drawings For Relatives And Friends, He Lost His Creative Urge And It Was Not Until 1991 After A Career In The Royal Navy During Which Time He Rose To The Rank Of Chief Petty Officer That The Passion For Drawing Resurfaced. He Successfully Exhibited In The P.A.W.S. Competition In 1991 And 1992. With Encouragement From His Wife And Friends, Peter Hildick Produced And Submitted A Pencil Drawing And A Watercolour To The P.A.W.S. 1993 Competition. Both Were Accepted And Exhibited The First Time One Artist Has Been Successful With Two Entries And A Special Award Was Introduced For Pencil Drawing. In 1994 Another Pencil Drawing Was Submitted (*Baby Love) Which Won The Chaffin Award For Best Monochrome Picture And The North Light Trophy For Overall Winner Of The P.A.W.S. 1994 Competition. Building On This Success Peter Decided To Place More Emphasis On His Drawing. We Very Much Appreciate Your Interest In This Piece. Any Further Inquiry Can Be Addressed At Info@Artisticfindings.Com.
