Editorial Reviews for this title:
Synopsis:
Covering the basics of wildlife painting, this book provides the beginner and advanced artist with the crucial knowledge needed to make their canvas come to life. Chapters initially zero on body shapes, proportions, water bird anatomy - including bills, wings, feet and their appropriate terminology - along with every position you'll find them in, be it standing, walking, swimming, feeding or flying. Later chapters become even more specific, illuminating such things as patterns, color and plumage. The book concludes with several painting demonstrations, both simple and complex.

Review:
Michigan-based painter Rod Lawrence has offered everything an artist needs to learn to paint water birds. This book explains how to compose thumbnail sketches, use reference photos, master anatomical details, capture action in feeding and flying, and place birds in typical environments. Short instructional demonstrations specify surface, paint, and brush materials, and guide the artist step by step through explicit aspects of waterfowl depiction, such as painting a folded wing on a female mallard in watercolor. Although Lawrence stresses the importance of working directly from nature, every page is packed with enough technical material to keep the artist challenged whether indoors or out. The book is geared for painters of all stages and media who want to bring waterfowl to life. Lawrence's graceful compositions and practical advice, such as "If you don't get discouraged and challenged by your art, then maybe you are not stretching yourself to do more," will inspire any artist. --Mary Ribesky
