Wild animals are a popular
subject for painting, and one of my own favorites. Even if
your drawing skills are not quite equal to the task, you can
paint six wildlife paintings with this useful book.
I’m glad to see this title as an addition to the award
winning and revolutionary Ready To Paint series. As with all
the titles, the tracings take away that tricky first step
to a painting by providing a drawing and instructions on how
to transfer it to your surface. As usual there are six tracings
and five step-by-step projects, each in over thirty (over
forty on some cases) photographic captioned stages so you
know what to add to your work each time. You can also learn
the various attributes of acrylics, from laying washes to
painting fur and fine details. The sixth tracing has no instructions;
you are on your own to work it all out with the aid of a large
picture of the finished work.
from a tiger cub, young Amur leopard, tufted ducks, alpaca,
red panda and zebra head. The tracings are reusable, so you
can use them over and over to get the right look if you need
to. There is even a link to a Facebook page where you can
share your paintings with other fans of this series, the finishing
touch to a truly great series of art books.
