Few creatures symbolize the beauty of the natural world better than birds, while their delicacy, poise and power combine to create irresistible subject for the artist.
More than a teaching guide, the book is a sumptuous well of ideas and inspiration that covers everything from observing birds in the wild to photography, composition and setting. Award-winning artist Alan Woollett shows you the techniques, materials and compositional skills you need to create your own stunning realistic bird artwork using graphite and colored pencils.
Since childhood, Alan Woollett has drawn inspiration from the natural world, drawing and painting the birds and animals he saw around him. After graduating from the Kent Institute of Art and Design, Alan has concentrated on wildlife art.
A member of The Wildlife Art Society, Alan regularly exhibits around the UK, including with the Society of Wildlife Artists. He has won a number of prestigious awards including Bird Artist of the Year 2000, awarded by Birdwatch Magazine and had a piece selected for the prestigious Birds in Art exhibition in Wisconsin, USA, in 2011.
