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 the knees and hands on a wet hill side crawl, or the brittle crunch of boot on dried autumnal leaves in the woodland — these are the moments that are conveyed by the artists in their work.
In this book, eight leading sporting artists each have their own chapter in which they portray the deer in their own unique style. From delicate pencil drawings to vivid watercolours and luxurious oils, they are images to be treasured as they capture the thrill that deer evoke. Brief natural history notes for each species are also included, however, this is first and foremost an insight into how each artist approaches their subject.
