Have you ever looked at art and thought it could be improved? Here is your chance.
This coloring book presents twenty-two line drawings of bird paintings by John James Audubon (1785-1851) for you to color. The paintings that Audubon created for The Birds of America documented American birds like never before. Audubon was an innovative artist and naturalist who searched all over the United States to draw as many birds as he could find. His dazzling life-sized watercolors, which showed birds within their habitats, were the models for a series of engravings that were printed, colored by hand, and sent out in batches to his subscribers.
This coloring book features primarily songbirds and waterfoul, with a hummingbird added for good measure. Reproductions of Audubon’s prints are shown in miniature in full color on the inside front and back covers, so that you can follow his color palette, if you wish.
Each picture is on its own page for easy removal for disply.
