Painting Animals by Christophe Drochon
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


Open this book and enter the extraordinary world of Christophe Drochon, an exceptional painter who, for the first time, lets us into his studio. The artist takes us into the animal world that is the source of inspiration for his paintings but also into the beauty and fragility of our environment, which is a matter of deep concern to him. From initial sketches 'from life' to painstaking studio work, he reveals every stage in the process of producing strikingly realistic paintings. Whether working in pierre noire, pastels, acrylic or oils, he shows unique technical skill in capturing the magic of the flight of a bird or the intensity of the gaze of a big cat. The authoritative text by Francoixe Coffrant helps us understand the scape of the artist's work and gives us an insight into his methods. Richly illustrated, every page of this book is an invitation to a world of dreams, discoveries and reflection.

Author Biography

Christophe Drochon's beautiful paintings demonstrate the mastery of a hyper-realistic technique that will delight and fascinate fans of nature. In his paintings, the animal and the scenery are often used as symbols to express ideas, and to illustrate emotional events in his personal life. Through his painting,Drochon hopes to inspire an awareness of the fragility of the world. Many of his paintings focus onthe eyes of the animal, and with these astonishingly intimate portraits, he allows us to glimpse the soul of the natural world, and in the process, brings us closer to an understanding of ourselves.
