Many species are included:cats- short haired, kitten, longhair and Siamese. Dogs-Dalmation, mixed breed, Yorky, and Retriever. Horses: Thoroughbred, Shetland, foal, paint horse (Skewbald), draft horse (Cob/shire), Appaloosa, thoroughbred foal, Lipizzaner stallion, Arabian filly, Friesian.

Each picture has a reference photo with the final picture looking close to the photo rather than being used as a source of inspiration. Pictures are either acrylic, oil or pencil and are built up in 4 to 6 stages the first being a line drawing/outline. Each stage has comprehensive notes. The omissions from the photos are reasonable- omitting the cage around a rabbit or a complex background with some simple shading. A squirrel in a tree is show with a hint of tree which improves the photos where the squirrel is almost lost to the back ground.
The author is highly skilled and to a beginner the step up from some stages to the next could seem a little daunting, however for some pictures stopping at stage 2 would give a very nice sketch. With some practice the more complex stages could be attempted.
Overall a very nice book highly recommended to budding animal artists.

Lovely book. I am fairly new to painting and have purchased several books, this is one of my favourites.Published 13 months ago by Amanda
It didn't go into much detail, so not all that helpful.
Consists mainly of photos of finished work, but ok for the price.
