Drawing Animals by Victor Ambrus

Drawing Animals
Victor Ambrus
Filled with Ambrus' reflections on the delights and dilemas of drawing animals, this breathtaking guide will be loved by anyone who appreciates the art of sketching. This oversized book is packed with the beautiful, loose and lively drawings Victor Ambrus is known for. From very quick sketches to more detailed, full-tonal studies, more than 350 drawings feature a variety of animals-polar bears, elephants, chimpanzees, tigers, wolves, kangaroos, giraffes, zebras, macaws, owls, ostriches-as well as cats, dogs and horses. Each animal requires a different approach, and for each sketch, Ambrus explains his techniques.  He also offers sound advice for drawing animals in the proper proportion and other key principles  that make the challenge of drawing animals easier. Victor Ambrus was an award-winning artist and esteemed member of the Royal Society of Arts in   England. He studied at the Hungarian Academy of Fine Art and graduated from the Royal College of Art in London, going on to illustrate more than 200 books, including The Three Poor Tailors and Mishka, both Kate Greenaway Medal winners.
