Wild Skeins and Winter Skies

Paintings and Observations of Pink-footed Geese

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 additional 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 fifteen winters and represents hundreds of hours of field observation. The combination of acute observation and artistic skill provides a deep insight in to the lives of these wonderful birds.

Foreword by David G Measures.

There are chapters explaining the behaviour and habits of the geese and another describing the artist?s approach to painting the wild geese outdoors from life. Short texts accompany each painting giving further insight into the situations portrayed.
