From Field and Forest: An Artists Year in Paint and Pen
'The beginnings of a bitter-sweet commission: a mistle thrust's egg, heralding a brief but very welcome return to spring...’ Acclaimed illustrator Anna Koska celebrates the life of the fields and forests surrounding her Sussex home in watercolour, pen and ink, oils and luscious egg tempera. Whether she is capturing wasps feasting on fallen apples, blossoming flowers or the cerulean blue of a winter sky, these beautifully detailed images root us in nature. And with her musings and observations, she engages us in the everyday realities of her artistic practice.
