The Thames : An Artist's Journey Paperback / softback
A vibrant collection of paintings and drawings of the landscape and wildlife of the Thames, following the river as it flows from the rural countryside of Gloucestershire, meandering past fields, villages and towns, through the heart of metropolitan London and to the sea.
After his previous book on the River Derwent, Riverside Journey, Ashley Bryant took up the challenge of painting the Thames, the most famous and fascinating river in England.
The book covers the story of the whole river, from beginning to end, providing an artist's view of the most interesting places it passes, giving a great view and insight into the life of the river.
The paintings reflect the beauty of the river itself, of the natural landscape through which it passes, and many of the architectural gems?
Palaces, Oxford colleges, churches, as well as bridges and humble cottages.
That have been raised alongside it. The Thames is an ideal companion for anyone walking beside the river, boating on it, or simply interested in the wildlife and the countryside that surrounds the Thames.
As such it will appeal to those who live near the Thames, as well as to visitors.
