Unlike painters of the human figure, artists reproducing images of animals have to "snatch" their opportunities, notes the author of this excellent how-to guide. He advises beginning artists to take advantage of moments during which the subject is at rest. Acquiring a certain knowledge of anatomy and characteristics of various animals is also essential to perfecting artistic renderings. Explanatory text is accompanied by the author's 233 accurate drawings depicting the relative proportions of a heavy draught horse and a horse trained for fox hunting; as well as studies of cows, dogs, birds, and other wild animals. Students of art will find this book essential in their studies of animal and bird forms.
