Birds & Butterflies Drawing & Activity Book: Learn to draw 17 different bird and butterfly species

Birds & Butterflies Drawing & Activity book is a new tutorial guide with additional activities aimed at younger artists, but fun and usable by everyone. Originally released in 2016, this reformat and re-release from Quarto on their Walter Foster Jr. imprint is 64 pages and available in spiral bound format.

There are 17 tutorials included which utilize basic techniques such as grid drawing, geometric base shape sketching, and tracing, along with word hunts, geometric grid coloring, map range matching puzzles and more. The drawing tutorials are species specific and include a lot of support information about the different species of birds and insects (specifically Lepidoptera).

This would make a great travel activity book for a trip. I always packed sketch pads, drawing materials and quiz/puzzle books for my kids when traveling. This book packs a lot of possibilities into a little space. It would also make a super gift for a young nature drawing enthusiast. Although the text and word puzzles are aimed at younger artists, it would make a fine drawing guide for beginning artists of any age. I managed a creditable adonis blue butterfly drawing by using only the tutorial steps in the book.

Five stars. Well made and engaging.

Disclosure: I received an ARC at no cost from the author/publisher for review purposes.
