Item description for The Woodcock: Artist's Impressions by Simon Gudgeon...
Superb illustrations by Britain's leading sporting artists in a beautifully designed, large format presentation
Treasured images capture the woodcock in flight and on the ground
The woodcock is a mysterious, unpredictable, secretive bird, loved by many sportsmen and naturalists alike. For centuries artists have been inspired by this iconic bird; its shape and coloring, its habitat, and its migratory pattern. In this book, eight leading sporting artists portray the woodcock in their own unique style from pencil, watercolor, and oil to outstanding sculptures.
A stunning book, beautifully designed, that will be savored by everyone whose blood begins to tingle when they catch sight of the woodcock silently flitting through the trees.
Simon Gudgeon, Ben Hoskyns, Terence Lambert, Rodger McPhail, Alastair Proud, Jonathan Sainsbury, Keith Sykes, and Owen Williams; foreword by HRH The Duke of Edinburgh, KG, KT
