This is a fully revised and updated second edition of a bestselling RSPB handbook to the art of drawing birds, first published in 1986. Busby beautifully conveys his own remarkable ability to capture the grace and motion of living birds, illustrating his ideas and suggestions with many examples of his own work. He also uses illustrations by 45 other talented bird artists to demonstrate a variety of principles and techniques. The text covers a wide range of topics, including choice of media, sketching from life, composition and different ways of interpreting subject matter.
I wholeheartedly recommed this book to anyone who is interested in etiher birds, illustrating them, or both. Hobby Greenhouse (Summer 2006) '..beautifully illustrated book..' '..offer[s] sound advice of experienced and aspiring artists.' Birder's World (October 2007)
