PLEASE NOTE: THE GALLERY OPENS AT 11AM 28th SEPTEMBER AND ARTWORKS WILL BE AVAILABLE TO BUY FROM 11AM ONWARDS, NOT BEFORE.

STUBBLE HARE WILL BE AUCTIONED – please email bids to the gallery before 30th September – starting bid £500

Robert Gillmor is probably the most well-known wildlife artist in the UK today. He is a founder member of the renowned Society of Wildlife Artists, along with Ennion, Scott and Shackleton. Robert has contributed to well over 500 publications as illustrator,author and editor, he designed the RSPB Avocet logo and more recently has designed 42 stamps for the Royal Mail.

Although he is well known for his linocuts, the basis for all Robert’s work comes from the hours of sketching birds and other animals in the field. These sketches are the vital building blocks for Robert’s beautiful work we are all so familiar with. This beautiful book is crammed full of Robert’s exquisite field drawings, from the quick line notes to the more considered watercolour studies – if you’re a Gillmor fan, you’ll love this book.
Price – £15.95 p&p free
