"Oil painters of all standards cannot fail to benefit from his advice on techniques and materials"
About the Author
David Shepherd, OBE, is one of Britain's most popular and successful artists and his original paintings and limited edition prints hang in collections throughout the world. He is a tireless campaigner for the causes in which he believes, most particularly wildlife conservation, which led him to set up The David Shepherd Wildlife Foundation. He has published a number of books and received a number of honours, amongst them the Order of the British Empire. David is married with four daughters and lives in West Sussex. He is also the proud owner of two steam locomotives.

There is, therefore, far more to David Shepherd's work than just the elephants for which he has become particularly famous. In addition, he has such a passion for the subjects he paints that he founded the "David Shepherd Conservation Foundation" through which he has channelled enormous funds towards helping and protecting endangered species of the world. How often do we find him on radio and television as he continually draws attention to this subject and that plight.
"Painting with David Shepherd" is not any old "how to" book. This is a book where one of Britain's most popular and successful artists shares his secrets in order to help other artists with their work. Whilst those who know something about this man may well have expected to find a picture of one of his Elephant paintings on the front cover, be assured, this is not all about wildlife. After an informative introduction in which he suggests the reader be prepared to completely re-think their traditional approaches to oil painting, we find sections on; Materials & methods, sketchbook, wildlife, landscapes, trains, boats & planes, the past and portraits.Read more ›
