About this book

Jonathan Truss is an inspiring artist who specializes in oil and acrylic paintings of wild animals. He expertly guides readers through artistic basics in the tutorial section, looking at drawing and painting fur, claws, eyes, scales and many other animal traits. The movement of animals is discussed, and Jonathan's artworks show how to convey their energy in paintings and sketches. Other professional artists including Trudy Friend and Jonathan Latimer have contributed to the tutorial section, and media including pencils, charcoal, pen and ink, pastels, watercolours, acrylics, gouche and oils are covered.

In the galleries, Sarah Hoggett provides expert commentary on artworks by professional artists, discussing how they have achieved various effects in their work. Sarah has also worked with several established animal artists to produce 30 great step-by-step projects for readers to follow along with. Subjects include geese on a lily pond by Robert Greenhalf, pelicans in flight by Jonathan Latimer, a buzzing bee by Lucie McDonald and a galloping dog by Abigail Edgar. Work through them all or pick and choose your favourite media or compositions.

The book is fully illustrated with more than 800 photographs, making it an inspiring and easy-to-follow guide for artists. It is designed to build confidence in students, empowering them to create their own compositions of the animal subjects that most inspire them.
