Grouse and Pointers
|Title||Grouse and Pointers|

Grouse and Pointers was inspired by a day that McPhail remembers fondly during a fishing trip in Scotland. Accompanying Rodger were a party of fourteen, including the sculptor Jason Sweeney and Gavin, one of his two sons. They were fully equipped for every eventuality and accompanied by a gillie with dogs for the day. Rodger recalls, ‘The dogs were wonderful but the birds were very wild! However, we managed to get enough grouse to feed everyone in the party of 14 that night! It was just a perfect day.’
This art print beautifully captures the essence of that memorable day and clearly shows McPhail’s love for observing nature in wild places. Amidst the heather and the rocks we feel drawn into the rugged landscape of the moors and the counterpoise between the pointers and the grouse as they are startled into flight.
Were these grouse wild enough to avoid the plate?
