Product Description

Product Description

Easy-to-follow, step-by-step demonstrations in acrylic, watercolor and oil

Inside, you'll learn how to create realistic wildlife paintings, step by step, mastering dozens of specific wildlife textures, including:

  • Fur of a bobcat, American bison, snow leopard cub and wolf

  • Feathers of a wood duck, white-throated sparrow and northern shoveler

  • Scales of a trout and sunfish

  • Ears of a cottontail rabbit, white-tailed deer and red fox

  • Bills and Muzzles of a northern cardinal, mallard, great blue heron and mountain lion

  • Tails and Feet of a red squirrel, ruffled grouse and blue jay

  • Antlers and Horns of a deer, moose, bighorn sheep and pronghorn

  • White and Black Subjects such as a polar bear, tundra swan and Canada goose

Through, you'll benefit from Rod Lawrence's years of wildlife painting experience. He'll help you notice, for example, the way hair and feature textures change on different parts of an animal's body through the seasons - and even according to the age of the animal.

Use this heightened awareness, along with the easy-to-follow, step-by-step demonstrations inside, to create more realistic, more sensitive wildlife paintings.

2.0 out of 5 stars Review 18 Feb. 2011
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Northlight have published some wonderful inspiring books on wildlife art, and I had hoped this book would be as good. It is a good book if you are a beginner, or if you don't own any of the myriad of other 'how to' titles, but if you do, you will sadly see a lot of repetition and not much new work. I have Northlight books several years old that contain the same paintings, so I was disappointed with this offering. It would be lovely to see some of these talented artists move away from this formula and start to give a bit more insight into their thoughts and working process which goes beyond this very basic predictable formula.

1.0 out of 5 stars Painting Wildlife 19 Dec. 2011
By Joyce M
I am very disappointed with this book. For example, the white tiger cub is only a patch of fur,only one of many other disembodied paintings. I would not recommend this book.

1.0 out of 5 stars Painting Wildlife 25 Feb. 2011
I wish I had read more about this publication. Its a bit short on information and the actual concept of Wildlife Painting.

My advise is to take a good look inside before you make your mind up to purchase.

5.0 out of 5 stars Painting Wildlife Step by Step 12 Feb. 2012
North Light Books are exceptional when it comes to explaining how to paint and draw and this book is no exception. I would recommend this book to anyone interested in drawing and painting wildlife. It has very clear steps to follow to achieve perfection in your chosen medium.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not as helpful as it looked! 26 Feb. 2014
By RubyRoo
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Perhaps I should have taken in the reviews already published here before purchasing this book. I was taken in by the cover picture, and thought this may be a project to paint. Unfortunately it wasn't , nor were there more than two actual projects to paint. Not really a step by step book!
Perhaps when I become more experienced it may come into it's own.
