My Take on the Book
Fiona Gwen illustrated this drawing book for Barron's. It is one in a series of drawing books. In this particular book there are 14 different specie entries but over 80 different animals you could learn to draw. The author grouped species on a page or two and if there were more than one kind of animal in the species she would show how that animal was different so it could be drawn. I felt the step by step directions and black on white illustrations were easy to follow.
