Painting More Animal Friends: 24 Step-By-Step Projects In Acrylic

by Jeanne Filler Scott




Jeanne Filler Scott captures the spirit and character of every animal she paints. When you look into those eyes, you feel the animal looking right back at you. In this book, Scott shows you how to achieve the same realistic results - even if you are a complete beginner!

Painting More Animal Friends features a variety of animals, from chipmunks and deer to elephants, tigers and colorful, exotic birds.

Inside you'll find:

  • Step-by-step instruction in easy-to-use acrylics, plus drawing templates that let you get started right away!
  • Expert instruction on painting ears, tails and all parts in between - including tips for painting a range or fur, skin and plumage textures. Advice on painting complementary backgrounds, including tips on painting grass, clouds and other natural elements.
  • And an entire chapter on capturing the nature of baby animals.

Scott's advice on finding inspiration and taking reference photos will also help you create your own original compositions. Best of all, there's no experience required, just a love of animals and the desire to celebrate them in paint.
