Few of us get the chance to paint iconic wild animals in their natural environment. In this exciting new 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.

Vic's methodical approach to painting and drawing animals makes his tuition so easy to follow. He starts with basic composition through to sketching the more detailed shapes before starting to apply colour. The art of creating the animals' fur is one Vic focuses on to ensure realistic pattern and detail. He takes us through three step-by-step demonstrations; a Panda in Acrylic, a Chimp in Pastel and a Tiger in Watercolour, so no matter what your preferred medium, there will be guidance and tips to help you.
All of the techniques Vic uses can be applied to any animal portrait, so you'll see your skills improve the more you use them. 
With the help of the special feature 'Focusing on Eyes', you can develop your skills on the intricacies of animal facial details. This will illustrate how to capture the soul of each animal portrait completely.
