About the Author

Vic Bearcroft is a self-taught professional wildlife and pet portrait artist, who specialises in pastel on velour, but also works in pencil, watercolour, coloured pencil, charcoal and acrylic media. Having spent part of his childhood in Kenya, Vic has been drawing animals since he could hold a pencil. Being passionate about wildlife in general, and particularly in wolves, Vic works with a large number of animal welfare and conservation organisations worldwide, donating prints, merchandise and funds. He says: While I consider myself to be a wildlife artist, I prefer to paint close-up intimate portraits of animals as individuals, rather than in landscape settings. My aim is to capture not only the likeness of the subject in my painting, but also the life and soul in its eyes.

Excellent reference. When I took a chance on this book, I was afraid it might be above my skill level, but it blew me away with how easy it was to follow. Very clear instructions for materials for beginners like myself, and step by step for advanced artists. I really like the examples of using strong light on a dark surface, and learned a lot from this animal art master. Highly recommend!
