Painting Wildlife in Watercolor
Watson-Guptill Publications, Incorporated, 2003 - Art - 144 pages
The only artist-in-residence at Chicago's Field Museum shares her unique approach to capturing all forms of wildlife in living, luminous watercolor. Painter, author, and faculty member at the Art Institute of Chicago, Peggy Macnamara, has been painting wildlife and nature scenes for more than 20 years. In Painting Wildlife in Watercolor, she shares her singular method, which relies on a slow layering of washes that eliminates the rigid and error-prone formulas of traditional watercolor painting. The author provides simple instructions for all the beginning and intermediate artist needs to know about creating lifelike renderings of fur and feathers, along with detailed illustrations of a vast range of both familiar and exotic animals.
