Robert Gillmor's Norfolk Bird Sketches

Robert Gillmor

Red Hare Publishing

2014

"Robert Gillmor is probably the most famous bird artist in the UK today. Although he is well-known for his linocuts and New Naturalist book jackets, the building blocks for all Robert's work comes from his sketches. In this charming book, Robert explains how his work in the field varies from very quick scribbles to note form, to more detailed studies in pencil and the more detailed colour work he can do when the bird stays still for long enough! The book has over 140 pencil and colour illustrations of birds, Many of which were painted on Robertís doorstep at the Cley Marshes Reserve."
