Jeanne Filler Scott applies a project-based approach (popular in decorative painting instruction guides) to the canvas. She provides over 27 demonstrations, featuring:

  • Clear instructions of the entire process with photos clarifying every step:
  • Template line drawings for each animal so readers at any level can start immediately:
  • The most requested and frequently painted animals:

    The result? A reference book that appeals to two enormous audiences: fine artists and decorative painters.:

    Jeanne Filler Scott’s work has been in numerous exhibits, including the National Wildlife Art Show and the Society of Animal Artists. In addition to her magazine credits, she has published several greeting cards. Also the author of Wildlife Painting Basics: Small Animals, Jeanne lives in Springfield, Kentucky—with 36 of her favorite animals.
