A new documentary about a special WA artist whose work depicts hyper-realistic sea creatures will be showing on ABC.
Roger Swainston is a painter, naturalist and zoologist – one of the most recognised artists of the underwater world.
You might have seen some of Roger’s art-work in field guides for anglers and fishers or other specimen books with intricately detailed paintings of fish.
Drawn to Water is a documentary that follows marine artist Roger as he embarks on the fifteenth year of a twenty-year project, studying the life of the Ningaloo Reef and its inhabitants through art.
Roger Swainston and director of the Drawn to Water Brendan Hutchens join me now.
