I really love this book; it doesn't concentrate on just one medium - techniques are given for whatever your preferred materials. It shows the picture building up through the different layers until a perfect and very lifelike finish is achieved.
Great.

I'm not sure why I don't like this book.

Perhaps because it's not really a how-to book, nor is it a book of fabulously inspirational paintings.

It's a bit sparse on its instruction: p.12-13 has you draw a cat "from simple shapes". The start is good: basic shapes; then refine the shapes and add some detail; then start marking directional strokes for the fur ... then the lesson just stops, with only the bare minimum of shading. The eye isn't even filled in. I thought a page was missing.
p.14-15 "Drawing a Cat in Charcoal" has simple sketches on the one page, and a finished sketch on the other. No in-betweens, no step-by-step or how-to pictures.
The same with the squirrel, the lion, the heron and the deer that follow: quick sketches and basic shapes, then straight to the finished drawing.

There's only one painting that I really like in this book: Lesley Harrison's otters in water, they are gorgeous and the blue water looks so real. Actually, Dee Smith's spoonbills are fab too. I like Carol Rochelle's green cheeked conure (p.78) because I have one as a pet.

Most of the paintings are what you might find on greetings cards: if that's a style you like, then you'll enjoy this book, but for a really great animal painter, look up Christophe Drochon.

A reasonable book if you only wish to view paintings and pictures, not recommended for techniques or to progress in painting animal fur. The book should stick to one artist.
