This drypoint painting, tinted with watercolour is my own version of van Gogh’s painting of the same name. I drew it from close to the same spot in on the Place du Forum in Arles where Vincent observed the scene, but from the other end of the cafe terrace.
This painting celebrates the incredible work of my hero, the scandalously unsung Alfred Russel Wallace. Wallace came up with the theory of natural selection independently of Darwin and established the study of biogeography.
This painting is no longer available, and is shown here for your viewing pleasure and for the glory of Wallace.

A painting of the voyage of HMS Beagle, the ship on which Charles Darwin travelled around the world -with particular attention to South America - making discoveries as he went that would change the course of natural science.
