About this book

Throughout this book you will benefit from the artist's years of wildlife painting experience. For example he will help you notice the way the hair and feather textures change on different parts of the animal's body through the seasons, and even according to the age of the animal.

Use your new found awareness, along with the easy to follow step by step demonstrations, to create dozens of specific wildlife textures, including fur, feathers, scales, ears, bills and muzzles, tails and feet, antlers and horns and black and white subjects such as polar bears and swans.
