About this book

This title features stunning natural history painting from dinosaur fossils to feathers, fish and butterflies. It provides techniques for drawing and painting with step-by-step demonstrations. It is written by award-winning authors. From the award-winning botanical painting authors, this is a new book to record more than just the flora of the world, but also the fauna. Recording accurately but beautifully the animal wildlife that surrounds us is an age-old art.

The authors, with the Eden Project, show us how to take up the subject and make the most of the revival of this art form. Finding sources from which to draw is not as difficult as it once was. We can visit zoos and wildlife parks, and museums have comprehensive collections of birds, animals, insects, crystals and fossils. All these sources allow us to take the time to capture the true essence of some of the most beautiful things on earth, from dinosaur skeletons, fossils and shells through feathers, birds, fish to beetles, butterflies and frogs. Learn how to paint the subtle scales on a fish, the iridescence of a feather or the luster on a shell.
