The Sporting Art of C. D. Clarke

Overview

C. D. Clarke says he was born to paint and fish and hunt, and he’s done just that over his lifetime, capturing memorable times on the water and in the field on canvas and finessing that passion and pastime into a laudable career. This magnificent book of his work features 200 paintings, tableaus of color, light, motion, and possibility, created over the course of forty years fishing and hunting in the world’s most coveted destinations. Clarke prefers to work en plein air, and on site he fills sketchbooks with scenes that inspire the oils and watercolors he later refines in his New Jersey Highlands studio. At an early age Clarke discovered the work of the wildlife artists Ogden Pleissner, Chet Reneson, Thomas Aquinas Daly, and John Swan, and they influenced his style. Clarke’s work is featured in galleries and museums nationwide and he exhibits at the most prestigious wildlife art shows and festivals. He is regularly featured in the top wildlife and sporting publications.

C. D. Clarke has maintained a lifelong, continuous global sporting and painting tour—traveling the world with clients, friends, and alone to fish, hunt, and paint in destinations the rest of us dream about: Sub-Saharan Africa, the Bahamas, Britain’s chalk streams, Scotland’s Spey waters, the Seychelles, Tierra del Fuego, the Andes, Argentina, Labrador, Cuba, British Columbia, Iceland . . . His work is shown in the most prestigious galleries, shows, and museums, including the American Museum of Fly Fishing, the Leigh Yawkey Woodson Birds in Art Show, the Thomasville Plantation Arts Festival (for twenty-three years), the Easton Waterfowl Festival, and the National Sporting Library and Museum. Clarke’s paintings hang in countless private collections and are featured on the covers of Gray’s Sporting Classics, Shooting Sportsman, Fly Fishing in Salt Waters, and many others. He regularly contributes pieces to a wide variety of conservation initiatives and is on the board of the Atlantic Salmon Foundation. He lives in Oldwick, New Jersey.
