Inspired by Nature: The Life and Art of Christine Isherwood

Christine Isherwood

This book of Christine's artwork is printed in full colour throughout, 128 pages, A4 landscape format with a laminated soft cover.

The opening biographical section is illustrated with family photos. We then move on to Christine's artwork with sections showing examples of her flower paintings, paintings of birds and mammals, measured drawings, landscapes, and pen and ink drawings for the walk guides.

The term 'Measured Drawings' refers to highly detailed paintings of birds and animals at life size based on dead specimens (commonly road kill). Chris made them as a way of increasing her knowledge and understanding of bird and mammal anatomy, plumage and pelage details, etc. They are a remarkable and important part of her output, here shown for the first time outside the family circle.
