Ready to Paint in 30 Minutes: Animals in Watercolor
This comprehensive beginner's guide to painting animals and birds in watercolor is ideal if you want to learn to paint but are short on time. Each of the 26 quick-and-easy exercises is worked at postcard size - ideal for a 6 x 4 in watercolor pad - and takes no more than 30 minutes to complete. Among the bird and animal species Matthew Palmer includes in this title are: parrot, cat, dog and puppy, sheep and lamb, zebra, stag, cow, swan, flamingo, elephant, penguin, robin, giraffe, snow leopard, ram, rabbit, meerkat, monkey, rooster and tiger. The book includes 3 larger paintings that demonstrate how to combine the elements you have learned into a painting of an elegant cockerel, a tiger's head and a team of dogs.
By creating these miniature works of art you will learn how to depict domestic and wild animals and birds close-up, or in the wild; how to portray realistic-looking fur and feathers, and how to capture a pet's personality in watercolor.
Outline drawings of all the exercises and paintings in the book are provided on tracing paper for you to transfer straight onto your watercolor paper.
