Giovanni Civardi has built a formidable reputation worldwide for his skills as both an artist and a teacher, and here he provides a unique introduction to the art of drawing pets. The focus of the book is very much on Giovannis exquisite drawings of a broad range of animals, including cats, dogs, horses, chickens, rabbits and birds, in a variety of poses. There are sections on perspective, anatomy, form, structure and movement, and techniques. Civardi also shares pages from his sketchbook depicting dogs, chickens, cattle, cats and horses and the book ends with a section devoted to the drawings he made in the Natural History Museum, Milan. The accompanying text provides concise, clearly written explanations of the subject, including materials, equipment and practical considerations, and the authors in-depth knowledge of the subject is apparent throughout. This is therefore an ideal introduction to drawing pets for the absolute beginner, as well as a source of information and inspiration for artists of all abilities.
