Overview

Not an artistic bone in your body, you say? Even your dog's bones are more "creative" than yours, you say? Take heart! With Drawing and Painting Animals, all that counts is your desire to try.

Page by page, you'll discover it's easier than you think to make realistic pictures of your favorite pets, barnyard critters and wild animals.

Simple exercises show you how to draw basic shapes and recognizable forms. From there, it's just a matter of combining these shapes, adding a few necessary details - and before you know it, you'll be drawing cats, dogs, bears, horses, elephants, birds…and any animals you please in any pose you like! Easy-to-copy drawings throughout gives you a great head start.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
These two books offer complementary approaches. Tilton, former Disney and Columbia studio artist and columnist for the Artist's Magazine, takes the student by the hand for easy, comfortable lessons. In a radical approach, he encourages tracing and copying as beginning teaching aids. An excellent appendix of books, magazines, and video recommendations leads one to the next level. Lawrence's Painting Wildlife can be the next logical step, with its sophisticated treatment of fur, feathers, scale, antlers, etc. Both are highly recommended for libraries whose clientele include both amateurs and professionals.
