Hi fellow wildlife art lovers,
"Great Cats" details Simon Combes epic journey around the world trying to observe and sketch and paint 9 of the worlds greatest big cats. 3 years of travelling with some dangerous and some hysterical moments this book is a great read for any adventurer and big cat lover.
The hardback book is approx 29cm x 27cm and contains 168 pages of colour paintings, black and whites sketches and colour photos. Enhanced by lively and informative text Combes take you on an adventure through Mongolia, Venezuela, India, Thailand and Africa.
The paintings, sketches, field notes , species details, and photographs are all full of detail, the attention to detail in the final paintings is extremely good-check out the light and shade on the lion studies on pages 82 and 83-Combes captures the moment beautifully!
This is another book full of great artwork and field sketches that would enhance the book collection of any big cat fan or aspiring wildlife artist.
