A potent combination of art, science, and boundless enthusiasm, the latest art instruction book from John Muir Laws (The Laws Guide to Drawing Birds) is a how-to guide for becoming a better artist and a more attentive naturalist.

Laws provides clear, practical advice for every step of the process for artists at every level, from the basics of choosing supplies to advanced techniques. While the book's advice will improve the skills of already accomplished artists, the emphasis on seeing, learning, and feeling will make this book valuableeven revelatoryto anyone interested in the natural world, no matter how rudimentary their artistic abilities. A sketchbook, constructed to withstand excursions in the field and containing several exercises from The Laws Guide to Nature Drawing and Journaling, is also available. --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.
