Library Journal Review

Here are ten step-by-step projects for painting animals in oil on prepared Masonite panels. Nelson (Painting Garden Birds) teaches a very realistic style of decorative painting using the animals and plants found near her Arizona home. Her general instructions for painting in oils include special techniques for reproducing animal fur. This book is certain to be useful for nature painters and is a good selection for public libraries. (c) Copyright 2010. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc.
