The Creature Garden takes you on a step-by-step expedition through the natural world, teaching you how to draw and paint 50 animals in a whimsical folk-art style. Your guides on this journey are the husband-and-wife illustrator team Harry and Zanna Goldhawk, the founders of Papio Press, who will teach you how to make vibrant paintings of beasts-both real and imagined. Learn to create:
MAMMALS, including big cats, wolves, sloths, and red pandas
MARINE LIFE, including whales, sea dragons, narwhals, and giant Pacific octopi
BIRDS, including peacocks, cranes, owls, and flamingos
INSECTS, including butterflies, moths, bumblebees, and damselflies
MYTHICAL CREATURES, including mermaids, unicorns, and dragons
Each project takes you through every step of the artistic process, from creating an outline to adding a realistic animal pattern, along with suggestions for materials and helpful techniques. Full of lush warmth and fairy-tale wonder, The Creature Garden is a wonderful addition to the repertoire of both seasoned artists and novices alike.
