Synopsis: A Master Artist Shares His Straightforward Approach for Capturing the Essence of Nature

One measure of a painting's success is the emotion it elicits from its viewer; William Silvers' wildlife scenes make your pulse quicken and your breath catch as you witness some of nature's most miraculous everyday moments. The midnight prowl of a wolf...a sea lion diving into choppy surf...a pride of elephants at a watering hole in the thick, dusty air. In this book, Silvers shares his secrets for capturing the drama, the atmosphere and the very essence of wildlife.
