Author(s): Julie Lemons
Julie Lemons believes art goes beyond a blank piece of paper and graphite. Happiness starts when the idea and desire to create something new becomes an urge that pushes the creativity. Then the chalk dances on the paper. -Naturally Wild- is a book designed to show the steps Julie has taken to create animal paintings from her own photos. The steps start from sketch to the completed painting. This book includes wild and domestic animals. You will find helpful tidbits about the materials and techniques used in the process. Julie hopes this book, -Naturally Wild- will encourage others to become artists, inspire artists to try something new in art, and reach prospective adoptive parents for animals in shelters and zoos. It is important to -give back- such as sharing her time and art ability. Julie hopes to do book signing events at the zoos represented in her book. She plans to do free art demonstrations for children at the zoos and animal shelters. Encouraging others in art and sharing a combination of joys in my life is important. -Naturally Wild- is inspirational book as a classroom tool to a coffee table book.
