Draw 30: Cats


in easy steps by Polly Pinder

Book Description

Learn to draw a cuddly collection of 30 characterful cats!

Learn to draw a cuddly collection of 30 characterful cats!

In no more than 6 simple stages, Polly Pinder shows you how to draw and colour 30 cats and kittens. Make up your own menagerie of feline friends from a slinky Siamese to a puffed-up Persian; a tabby on the prowl to a tortoiseshell with a shiny bell.

Each cute kitty is developed in no more than 6 easy stages, from a rough sketch of the basic shapes to a full-colour pet paw-trait in watercolour or coloured pencil whatever medium you choose. Within the book's easy-to-follow landscape format the cats leap to life across the pages, making them purr-fect for budding artists of all pedigrees: from kids looking for afterschool art projects to adults wanting to create lifelike pet portraits.

The book contains material previously published in How to Draw Cats (2008), PLUS 5 pretty kitties drawn specially for this new volume!

About Polly Pinder

Polly Pinder studied graphics at Leeds Art College. Her first job was with a Yorkshire newspaper, and she subsequently worked as a lecturer in graphic design at Wakefield District College. She has written and illustrated a number of books on a variety of other subjects including cake decoration and growing herbs, papermaking and paper crafts. Her illustrations in Muck and Magic were commended when that book won the 1993 Sir Peter Kent Conservation Book Prize. She has also designed bed linen and wallpapers, and the graphics for a wallpaper book based on newly-discovered eighteenth-century wallpapers.

Polly now works from her pottery studio creating beautiful, small-batch candle holders and large food platters.
