‘This is, I think, the best book on drawing animals I’ve seen. The sheer breadth of the coverage and the amount of detail that Tim goes into is breathtaking.’ Henry Malt, Artbookreview.net
‘Tim is a genius in every respect and this really could be the only book on animal drawing you’ll ever need.’ Paint Magazine
Artist Tim Pond’s lively and engaging book fuses science with art, providing you with the skills, techniques and knowledge you need to create sketches of animals filled with life and movement. Tim shows you how to observe and draw animals in zoos, farms, wildlife parks and aquariums, teaching you some fascinating facts about the animals along the way and ultimately bringing you closer to nature.
One of the challenges with sketching wildlife is that animals are constantly moving. However, having some basic understanding of biology can help you capture the form, movement and ultimately the spirit of the animal in question. This combination of scientific knowledge and practical guidance is key to creating lively drawings and Tim’s ability to convey this in an accessible and engaging way makes this a unique and inspiring guide.
