Join wildlife artist Shelly Perkins on a visual African journey as she shares with readers her love of the flora and fauna of this beguiling continent through the pages of her safari sketchbooks, her photography and artwork.

Share Shelly’s experiences of sketching and viewing wildlife in the African bush and the meditative experience that brings. Learn how she translates her experiences initially into lively sketchbook studies before working on finished pieces back in the studio.

Shelly explains her approach to composition, colour and conveying movement in her wildlife artwork and explores how the freedom of experiencing wildlife in the field acts as a catalyst for her approach to her work.

This book is casebound and measures 29 x 21 cm.
