Drawn to Animals
A new book by Dr Susan Poole.
Drawn to Animals is collection of drawings, etchings and watercolours of animals encountered first-hand by international award-winning artist Dr Susan Poole on her travels across many continents and at home in the UK.
Many pages of sketchbook studies are also included, totalling more than 100 images, over 60 in colour. It represents an artistic journey, with explanations about where and why Susan chose the animals she did, both wild and domestic.
It also includes some fascinating facts about her subjects.
Susan Poole has an MA in Fine Art and a PhD in Art and Archaeology with work published on Aegean art. She is Vice President of the Society of Graphic Fine Art, a Signature member of the UK Coloured Pencil Society, and a member of the Association of Animal Artists.
Explanations about how some of her work was developed, together with more about animals can be found on her Blog: www.drawn-to-animals.co.uk
