Drawn to the wild


This beautiful book features a rich collection of over 150 of Dillon's sketches and paintings. It celebrates his working process with a large number of watercolour sketches made in the field shown alongside the more deeply considered studio paintings.  Beginning with an autobiographical introduction covering his early years he then writes about 55 bird species from an artistic view point. This book is a very personal and heartfelt tribute to the birds of New Zealand
