'Deer: Artists' Impressions' by Graham Downing et al.

Release date: 14th July 2013
Published by: Quiller Publishing Ltd
ISBN No: 978 1846891847

In this book, eight leading sporting artists have their own chapter in which they portray the deer in their own unique style from delicate pencil drawings to vivid water-colours and luxurious oils. They are images to be treasured as they capture the thrill that deer evoke.

There are moments experienced whilst stalking that encapsulate the heightened sense of awareness and anticipation that only the hunter can feel. Whether it's the cold dampness of knees and hands on a wet hillside crawl or the brittle crunch of boot on dried autumnal leaf in woodland, these are the moments that, as artists, we try to convey through paintings, engravings and illustrations.
