An expert guide to producing beautiful lifelike drawings of birds in their natural habitat.
Artists of all interests will find a lot to inspire them in this detailed, practical and beautiful guide on drawing birds. The book includes sections on materials, basic techniques and reference gathering, as well as how to draw the key features of birds such as beaks, eyes, claws, wings and feathers. A special section will focus on birds in flight, and this will be followed by chapters on the main bird families including: Water birds and waders, Wildfowl, Birds of prey, Garden and woodland birds and Sea birds.
Each chapter will cover the techniques specific to the group as well as numerous examples and a full step-by-step demo. The absence of colour means that Andrew uses other aspects such as pattern, shading and shape to give his paintings life and interest. Written for artists who wish to apply their skills to drawing birds, as well as experienced artists who want to improve their drawing skills, this is an expert guide to producing exquisitely rendered, lifelike drawings of birds in their natural habitats and nothing could be more inspirational than Andrew's accurately observed and truly beautiful drawings.
