Wildlife Art Guide - Land, Sea and Air
Wildlife Art Course now with Free Copy of Drawing and Sketching Guide
The Wildlife Art Guide now comes with a free copy of the Drawing and Sketching
cd-rom guide, the latter is currently available to view free on the ArtGraphica website.
The "Wildlife Art Guide - Land, Sea and Air" demonstrates the drawing and painting of nine different animals in various mediums and styles, giving detailed step-by-step instructions and videos to follow the process from beginning to end. This is much more intimate than a book full of static picture; now you can follow and watch the art process in action, again and again.

"More than 50 Videos clips compromising of 3 hours of video footage."Each tutorial starts with the basics of the materials used and moves on to the techniques of using the media at hand. The CD includes demonstrations in pencil using various techniques from blending with special art tools and hatching techniques (e.g. masked boobies), using a range of pencil hardnesses to smoothen and create blended effects (lion), graphite powder brushed onto paper (Fighting Conch Shell demonstration) to careful hatching on smooth grained paper where smooth detailed effects can be applied without blending (Crayfish). Alla prima (wet-into-wet) oil techniques are demonstrated on the Horse and Mandarin Duck, and The Seahorses are rendered in fast drying acrylics. The Alaskan Husky uses watercolour and an oil painting bristle brush to create effortless soft fur effects and the Hyacinth Macaw demonstrates the swiftness and vibrancy of pastels. To accompany the videos, this beautifully presented multimedia product provides step-by-step analysis and instruction to each stage of the drawing/painting.
