Drawing & Painting Wild Animals Book with Vic Bearcroft





SAA Price

Member Price Tooltip


Few of us get the chance to paint iconic wild animals in their natural environment. In this exciting book, BBC Wildlife Artist of The Year 2012 Finalist and Endangered Species Category Winner, Vic Bearcroft will show you how to capture these magnificent creatures closer to home, either from photographs or by visiting one of the many wildlife parks around the country.

The book is progressively structured and Vic will lead you in if you're new to the subject, discussing materials for drawing and painting in watercolour, acrylic and pastel, and then moving on to tone and colour as well as simple shapes and sketches.

The bulk of the book is divided up by animal types, including big cats, bears, apes and the dog family.

Each of these sections includes detailed notes on the basic structure and features such as eyes, noses and skin or fur, and is completed by a full step-by-step demonstration of one of the classics of the group - a tiger, a panda, a chimpanzee and so on.

This is one of the best, most thorough and most easy to follow books on animal painting there has been in a long time.

There is a DVD to accompany the book.

  3. Excellent Review by Roger Barnard

    I have only just received it and goodness knows how long it will take me to cover all the animals the author describes. I think that the drawings and the diagrams on how to draw them are excellent. (Posted on 22/10/2012)

  10. Not for me Review by Steven Weekly

    It is certainly a nicely produced book but for me I was a little disappointed as it didn\'t have as much watercolour coverage as I thought. However for artists that try other media as well then this will be a good addition to your library (Posted on 01/10/2012)
