The Field Guide to Drawing and Sketching Animals

The Field Guide to Drawing and Sketching Animals

Tim Pond

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.

Covers a broad range of wildlife including mammals, reptiles, birds fish and insects and includes quick, gestural sketches as well as linear and tonal studies, in a variety of media - pencil, pen and ink and watercolour.

Suitable for artists of all abilities, as well as professional illustrators and animators.

Foreword by evolutionary biologist and BBC presenter Dr. Ben Garrod, and preface by Dominic Jermey, ZSL Director General. 192 pages.
