Bring the animal kingdom to life in just 30 minutes with popular author and demonstrator Matthew Palmer with this fantastic Book & DVD set.
From realistic markings and fur to creating faces filled with character and personality, Matthew will guide you through the techniques you need to create your very own animal paintings in watercolour.
The book is broken down into 32 quick and easy paintings which will guide you step-by-step into the animal kingdom and the diversities of shape, colour, texture and form that these fascinating animals present. Tracings are provided for all the paintings, including for the three full-size projects – a King Charles cavalier spaniel, full of furry character and charm, a majestic snow leopard and a hummingbird with exquisite detail and precision.
On the DVD you’ll discover the secrets of successful and effective lifting out as you create a wise old elephant, and how to use your brush strokes to great effect when painting the fur of a curious white rabbit. Three waddling penguins will teach you about creating a group of animals as well as how to deal with backgrounds and texture – all with Matthew’s easy-to-follow instruction and enthusiasm.
