Producing Taming Wildlife has given me the opportunity to share my knowledge, including many of the short cuts I have learned along the way. The step-by-step portraits inside are stunning, ranging from extremely popular big cats to the enigmatic giant panda. Not to mention a charming wolf and the exquisite black leopard adorning the front cover.

At the beginning of this book, you will find a brief introduction and guide to creating a great animal painting along with tips on how and where to start. I have written some guidance on a few types of pastel pencils and surfaces you could use but the beauty of learning about pastels is finding out what really suits you. There is also some advice on research, reference photographs and composition to help you before you really get going. Then the fun really begins…

There are 5 highly detailed full subject, main portraits for you to work through with beautiful photographs supplied as reference, and easy instructions designed to keep you fully engaged and motivated throughout. Mixed in with the larger paintings in this book are 6 smaller step-by-step projects which will enable you to practice the techniques before you tackle one of the main attractions such as the majestic lion, or the stunning wolf portrait.


Finally, there are over 130 videos available for you to access once you have become a site member. These include videos of each small step-by-step, from start to finish, essential to demonstrate exactly how to use the pastel pencils. There are also accompanying videos for each of the 5 large portraits showing you how to achieve small stages of the painting.

"Thank you SO much for the beautiful book which arrived this morning, I will look forward to reading through it and trying out the techniques. I like the different colour edges on the pages so that it's easier to find each section. Your pictures are so amazing, I don't think I've ever seen such detail in animal portraits!"

5.0 out of 5 stars Absolutely brilliant!

I have bought a few books showing you how to draw animals and this is easily the best. It takes you straight to the actual drawing of all parts of the animals, giving you a good selection to choose from. I will definitely look for others by this author and would give it ten stars if I could.
