Wild Skeins and Winter Skies

£55.00

Product description

Wild Skeins and Winter Skies explores, in paint, the lives of pink-footed geese. Over ninety paintings, each painted outdoors, depict many aspects of the birds' behaviour and show them in an array of weather conditions.  Short notes add greater detail to the images and help evoke a sense of 'being there'. In further chapters, the artist describes his approach to painting from life, shares accounts of memorable days spent watching geese and explains much of the birds' behaviour. This knowledge has been gathered over the last 15 winters and represents hundreds of hours of field observation. The combination of acute observation and artistic skill provides a deep insight into the lives of these birds.
