DRAWING WILDLIFE front cover DRAWING WILDLIFE back cover. About this book..

From the back cover: Drawing Wildlife is the embodiment of wildlife artist and naturalist J.C. Amberlyn's lifelong dedication to observing wildlife and mastering art techniques that illustrate the beauty of nature. Vivid descriptions and hundreds of detailed drawings bring to life over sixty species of wolves, foxes, wild cats, weasels, bears, deer, mountain sheep and goats, rabbits and hares, squirrels, and more! Everything you need to know to draw a particular species, from details of the head and body, to fur color and texture, to the way an animal moves, is provided. Ten demonstrations in a variety of mediums, including pencil, pen and ink, charcoal, and colored pencil, show step-by-step how to re-create the work of a master wildlife artist. This lavishly illustrated guide contains all the information and inspiration you need to create compelling portraits of wildlife.

To My Readers...

First of all, I'd like to thank you for your interest in my book. This project has been over 3 years in the making and I have been fortunate to have the help and support of many people. I have had a lifelong interest in animals and art and it has come together in a book that I am proud of. I hope you enjoy reading it as much as I have enjoyed creating it.
