John Busby's drawings and paintings live and breathe the magic of their subject. His gannets soar and hang, stall and drift again, riding the currents of air as lightly as the pencil glides. How beautifully his young foxes leap, their energy, rhythm and playfulness radiate from every graphite mark. How deftly the hand of the artist suggests the feathers and down of a barn owl.
Lines from Nature was finalised before John's death. The layout, selection of paintings and text are all his own work.
In this John's final book lose yourself in each page and marvel at the gift of touch in every line and mark.
