Having always been a fan of David Shepherd ,it is good to find another artist who can give him a run for his money.I find this a great guide in my painting ,although I paint in oil.Seeing such work in acrylic ,I am thinking of giving it ago.Well worth its money.

A favorite wildlife painting book!!!!! 9 Jun. 2010
By K. Christopher - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
If you can find this book - buy it !! Get all 3 of the published books!
Artists, art lovers, animal lovers, nature lovers - this is a wonderful book!
Quality paintings of Africa and its magnificent wildlife. As an artist, Simon's paintings have taught me so much !!! His inspiring oils capture the animals soul and the essence of the land. His people portraits are spectacular too! I feel so lucky to have this book and a glimpse of one of our finest artists! In a heaven that floats him over his beloved Africa...I hope he knows how much his work is loved.
IF YOU LOVE GOOD WILDLIFE ART... 7 Mar. 2014
By julie parker - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
THIS IS A VERY GOOD BOOK TO HAVE ON YOUR SHELF IN YOUR ART STUDIO. SIMON COMBES HAS SUCH A FINE TALENT AND I AM THANKFUL HE SHARES IT WITH US BEGINNERS TO FINE-ART COLLECTORS. THE CONDITION AND THE BOOK ITSELF WAS IN FINE SHAPE FROM COVER TO COVER. AND I WOULD BE AN IDIOT TO COMPLAIN ABOUT THE PRICE. THERE ARE NOT AS MANY PICTURES AS I WOULD LIKE; EXAMPLE; JOHN SEERY LESTERS' BOOKS ARE OVER-FILLED WITH PICTURES OF OUTSTANDING WORKS OF ART, AS WELL AS KEN CARLSON TO BOB KUHN AND OTHERS. FOR ME, THERE IS A NICE TONE TO LOOKING AT BEAUTIFUL WORKS OF ART IN ALL MEDIUMS-STYLES JUST BEFORE I GO TO SLEEP. ANYWAY, THIS IS A VERY GOOD BOOK TO HAVE AROUND YOUR HOME. BUY USED NOT ONLY FOR THE PRICE BUT THE QUALITY HAS BEEN WONDERFUL THUS SO FAR.
An African Experience: Wildlife Art and Adventure in Kenya 17 Mar. 2014
By K.Jayaram - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
A great book of wildlife art from Africa. A keen naturalist turned wildlife artist. Each and every image in this book by this great artist is a feast to watch. A distinct style in his paintings clearly shows up like a photograph with out of focus back ground in each and every painting clearly makes the subject stand out. Many unique photograph like paintings in this book makes it a rare book of wildlife art. Unfortunately, this great artist's life was sealed by an African Buffalo in front of wife while he was trying to capture it as a sketch. Nature lovers and artists can't miss this book.
A Must for Lovers of Wild Art 23 July 2005
By Joan Neligan - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
I love this book and will treasure it. I hated coming to the end of it and hope to get a copy of his second book - Great Cats - and read of more of his adventures as he travels around the world . Apart from the animals, I think his painting of trees, bushes, grassland and dust is superb. So sad that it was a buffalo that ended his life.

I bought this book as a present for my parents after they took a safari to Kenya. They love this book! It sits on their coffee table and they encourage all who stop by to view it. The story of the author/artists life is remarkable. The beautiful artwork which accompanies the tales of living in Kenya are so life like it's amazing.
