Synopsis

Featuring the delightful and informative illustrations of artist Oana Befort and the inspiring expertise of conservation educator Maggie Reinbold, Drawing Wild Animals guides artists at all skill levels as they learn to draw-and learn about-a diverse array of mammals, amphibians, and reptiles from around the world.



To feed your curiosity, you'll learn the characteristics, behaviors, and habitats of animals from categories like predators, burrowers, grazers, marsupials, frogs and toads, and lizards and snakes. To nurture the artist, you'll get more than 25 step-by-step instructions that show how to develop each animal from simple shapes into richly detailed drawings. Armed with a deeper understanding of animals, you'll be better able to capture their stunning beauty and enchanting attributes in your artwork.
