Jeffery Camp RA is one of Britains most accomplished artists. In this unique book he brings together his highly individual figure compositions and comments on art and life. Tender studies of people, plants and birds, paintings of the sea and shore, and portraits of artist friends and contemporaries reveal his astonishing draughtsmanship. Interspersed with the works are Camps pithy and astute observations, from notes on the tools and techniques of his trade to reflections on his artistic influences and the passing of time. Following his best-selling publications "Draw: How to Master the Art" (1981) and "Paint" (1986), which offered insights into ways of working and looking, "Almanac" adds an autobiographical element to showcase the full extent of the artists wide-ranging and quirky talent.
Jeffery Camp is a prize-winning artist whose paintings are widely exhibited and can be found in many collections, including those of the Royal Academy of Arts, Tate, and the Arts Council of Great Britain.
