As a young girl, Patricia Getha spent many summers looking after and showing horses. Drawing played a large role in Pat’s life from an early age, but it was a love of horses that enabled her to master the subject. With formal training in commercial and graphic arts, Pat is proficient in a variety of media, including watercolor, graphite, oil, and colored pencil. She is active in juried competitions and has won several awards for her exquisite equine artwork. A mother of four young children, Pat currently resides in Ohio and works primarily as a commission artist.
Featuring an array of adorable pets and majestic wildlife, this exceptional 144-page book offers simple, step-by-step instructions for creating dozens of incredibly lifelike animal drawings. Inside, five talented artists reveal their professional secrets for drawing all the features that are unique to our furry and feathered friends—from wet noses and expressive eyes to thick fur and delicate whiskers. The book opens with essential information about drawing tools and materials, followed by instruction on how to approach a drawing––such as building up forms with basic shapes, transferring a reference, and using a projected photo image. Then the authors demonstrate their unique approaches to drawing through an array of inspiring projects, guiding readers from initial sketches through the detailed shading process to the finishing touches. As readers progress from project to project, they will find a range of helpful topics, such as portraying accurate proportions, creating dynamic compositions, and using colored pencils.

As a beginner, I liked the tips in this book. The different styles presented was a bonus for me. In a way seeing the different approaches made me find what works for me and my style instead of getting my brain locked in to someone’s else’s technique.
Most other beginning drawing books show you only that author/artist’s approach. Nothing wrong with that, but this one helped me see there isn’t just one way to do things.
