I have discovered the best, most accurate bird drawing and painting book that I have ever seen. Laws Guide to Drawing Birds should become a reference book for every natural artist and illustrator–and for anyone else who wants to depict birds the way that they actually are.
The following images are from Amazon, where the book can be purchased. I have taught art for more than 40 years; and most bird drawing books are totally unnatural. The birds are often too cute, too stiff, and/or colored unnaturally. Laws has absolutely mastered the skill of representing birds–common birds, like sparrows, warblers, cardinals, robins, etc.,naturally.
