Drawing animals from life is the best way to understand an animal.

Drawing animals from life is the best way to truely understand an animal.
Being infront of a live animal will reveal form and  and working anatomy of the animal. Working this way will show you things you cannot see from a photograph.
 From various places around Australia, I draw to capture the essence of  the animal. 
Before I start any wildlife painting I always ensure I  have a correct understanding of the environment the animal lives in and it's characteristics/ attitude and correct anatomy before I start.

When drawing animals you have to be quick , capturing the action pose in quick loose sketches in simplified shapes or gestural drawing to show an understanding of anatomy, rhythm and pose of the animal.
You must be able to see the pose in your mind and transfer it onto paper.
Curved lines that give movement to your drawing are known as rhythm. It is essential you show this in your drawing , so your drawing doesn't look too stiff.
The best animal drawings show attitude and character in them of the animal. It is not easily mastered but when your drawing shows this, it conveys  more interest , making the piece a more interesting, showing feeling and attitude in the drawing.
 Sometimes you have to wait hours to see a beautiful moment occur and quickly jot it down.
