About this book

John lives on the Solway coast of Dumfries and Galloway. Within a few miles either way it is possible to find a range of coastal habitats, from off shore islands to sea cliffs, maritime heath, rocky shores, sandy beaches, estuaries and saltmarsh. These locations where the land meets the ocean have formed the basis of John's work for many years and Drawn to the Edge expands upon this compulsion, exploring key locations around the UK coast that provide some of the finest examples of these habitats and the rich diversity of life that depends upon them.

Media reviews

"[...] There has for some time been a real renaissance in the UK scene for a looser style, achieved in the field, and capturing an essence of a fleeting moment. [...] John Threlfall, with his second book in the Langford Press series, is firmly established here too. His latest offering takes the theme of Britain’s varied coastline as the subject on which to hang the wildlife paintings and drawings, characterised by often strongly lit scenes constructed in coarse dabs of paint, deftly and loosely applied. This apparently carefree style is, of course, anything but; this work is still accurate of form and proportion and carefully composed. John, like those mentioned above, is a consummate draughtsman beneath all the bold strokes.

I tried to like the unusual form of the artwork captions – random thoughts, lacking punctuation, – but ultimately I wasn’t enamoured. And, once again, I appeal for dimensions to be given for the main works – I get the feeling that many of these painting are big… All in all, however, a thoroughly enjoyable book."
