Producing Taming Wildlife has given me the opportunity to share my knowledge, including many of the shortcuts I have learned along the way. The drawing tutorials 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 show you how to draw along with simple steps on how to draw 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 subjects, main portraits for you to work through with beautiful photographs supplied as a reference, and simple steps 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 easy step by step, from start to finish, essential to demonstrate exactly how to use the pastel pencils to create realistic paintings. There are also accompanying videos for each of the 5 large portraits showing you how to achieve small stages of the painting.

"This guide to painting wildlife will simply take your breath away. Using pencils is understandable because of the opportunity
for working with fine detail... Her work, however, speaks eloquently for their abilities and the quality of the reproduction is superb..."
