Instructions for carving and painting waterfowl. Every waterfowl artist, whether novice or professional, experiences moments of frustration, confounded by nature's ingenuity, and wonders how best to proceed. This essential reference, accompanied by color photographs, offers detailed instructions on carving and painting ducks and geese, paying particular attention to anatomy and coloration.
From the Back Cover:
Waterfowl artistry, whether created by carver or painter, is incredibly difficult to master. From the distinctive bill and almond-shaped eye of the hen mallard to the magnificent back pattern of the pintail drake, nature exhibits an unrivaled creativity, rife with subtlety, which artists can only crudely re-create.
As one of America's premier authorities on the carving and painting of waterfowl, Charles W. Frank, Jr., understands the daunting task carvers and painters of ducks and geese undertake, whether they engage in the realistic or decorative, whether they are amateurs or professionals. Organized by chapters, each devoted to drake and hen of a particular species, including the mallard, pintail, hooded merganser, wood duck, and snow goose, this book offers detailed instructions on carving and painting techniques. Frank demonstrates, with over 250 color photographs, his unparalleled knowledge of each species' peculiar anatomy, vermiculation, and coloration.
