Considered by many as the world’s foremost sporting artist, Eldridge Hardie has been painting hunters and anglers on the water and in the field for more than three decades.
Now, in his new large format, 12 x 10 inch book, The Sporting Art of Eldridge Hardie, the gifted artist presents 150 paintings of upland bird hunters, waterfowlers and anglers. Readers will love his detailed depictions of many different breeds of gundogs.
Throughout the book are sidebars relating to the general subjects of the paintings gleaned primarily from a lifetime of the artist’s own hunting and fishing experiences. There is also a special section devoted to the creative process where original paintings are paired with the preliminary studies and notes leading to the finished pieces.
