Draw and Paint Your Petby Susie Wynne
What doting owner wouldn’t want to create a permanent record of their pet? Now a professional watercolor artist shows them how! Susie Wynne specializes in painting animals, and over the years she has perfected her drawing and watercolor techniques to demonstrate how anyone can capture the unique character and personality of their pet. She believes that you really have to get to know an animal well before you can portray its essential character, which is why pet owners often do the best portraits. In Draw and Paint Your Pet, she demonstrates, step by step, how every reader can paint just about any animal—including dogs, cats, horses, guinea pigs, even birds—in gorgeous color and detail. She begins by showing readers how to take photographs to use for making pencil sketches. Next, she shows ways to determine the right body proportions and capture the texture of fur and markings with watercolor and watercolor pencil. The 150 color photographs show these successful techniques in action, making it simple for all devoted animal lovers and artists to reproduce their beloved pets on paper and canvas. For any artist who loves animals, Draw and Paint Your Pet is an indispensable resource.
