About this book

The Insect Artist offers a complete course in illustration and lifelike artwork.

The 15 projects are designed to build on one another, beginning with techniques that strengthen drawing and acrylic painting skills. More advanced projects focus on design principals, realistic environments, and creative challenges. Clear instructions and visual demonstrations describe each step of the process and reference photos show the anatomy and coloration of each insect. Short outdoor exercises are included as lessons on actively observing the nature. This is a book for artists of all levels and anyone interested in rediscovering the natural world through artistic expression.

Packed with creative tips:
- Achieve rich colours, surface textures, and spatial depth
- Measure proportions accurately
- Simplify tricky forms and patterns
- Establish an inspiring and supportive art practice
