Few creatures symbolise the beauty of the natural world better than birds. Their delicacy, poise and power combine to create an irresistible subject for the artist. In this his first book, award-winning artist Alan Woollett captures perfectly, in breathtaking detail, the exquisite beauty of birds in their natural environments using graphite and coloured pencils, often combining both media in the same composition.

With clear, step-by-step demonstrations and projects to work through as well as numerous examples of the author's stunning artworks, Bird Art represents a true masterclass in the art of drawing birds.
