Detailed studies of 15 different species make up this guide to depicting birds in oil paints. There are field sketches and reference photos for each one; demonstrations that focus on details such as feather types and facial features; step-by-step instructions for your preparatory drawings and the painting itself; and suggestions for adding extra details such as the flowers common to each bird's habitat. The projects are graded from easy to more challenging compositions. Written for an American readership.
