This informative textbook for bird artists is a comprehensive survey of the complete bird from head to tail. The book is full of masterly illustrations that are clear and easy to understand, including black and white working drawings, examples of the artist’s field studies and exquisite colour illustrations. The examples are mostly of Australian birds. Every part of the bird’s body is outlined in detail with informative text and helpful drawing instructions.
For this second edition, the text has been revised and updated, and many illustrations upgraded and replaced.
