With just two books of paintings and sketches from his native Scotland, Keith Brockie has quickly established himself as one of the leading wildlife artists of our time. From reviewers, critics and members of the public all over the world there has been a chorus of praise for his remarkable artistry and his extraordinary sensitivity to wildlife. In "The Silvery Tay" Keith Brockie brilliantly enhances his reputation. In 150 paintings, sketches and drawings - in watercolour, pencil, crayon and oils - he superbly captures the birds, animals, flowers and plants that are to be found along the River Tay. It is the longest river in Scotland, and its headwaters, its lochs, its hinterland and its estuary are astonishingly rich in wildlife. Roe deer and mountain hare are found here; salmon, trout and other fish abound in the water; ospreys nest close by; rare plants such as alpine gentian and drooping saxifrage grow high up in the surrounding mountain ranges; eagles, herons, goosanders, oystercatchers, lapwings, swans, goldeneyes and divers are just some of the numerous and beautiful birds that inhabit and visit the area; seals swim in the estuary in the Firth of Tay. Keith Brockie paints and draws all this flora and fauna with enormous fidelity and attention to detail. The River Tay travels through a beautiful landscape containing an outstanding variety of wildlife. In capturing the thread of life at the heart of this unique region, Keith Brockie's magical illustrations will confirm his standing as an artist and naturalist of supreme quality.
