Paint Pets for the Chance to Win a Set of Books from Search Press

We have teamed up with Search Press inviting you to paint pets for the chance to win one of three sets of books worth almost £28 per set.

With a passion for animals that is evident throughout, animal portrait artist Dave White offers basic advice for beginners along with more advanced techniques suitable for experienced artists who wish to capture the spirit and character of dogs in their portraits in his book Painting Dog Portraits in Acrylics.

How to Draw Dogs is a delightful introduction to drawing dogs completely demystifies the drawing process. It shows how images can be built up easily, from initial geometric shapes right through to the finished animals. Susie Hodge includes a good selection of popular breeds and she uses a helpful two colour method that clearly shows every line and curve of the step-by-step pictures.

How to Draw Cats is an easy-to-follow book which teaches you how to draw short-haired and long-haired cats and kittens in extremely easy step-by-step stages. Polly Pinder includes a good selection of all the favourite breeds including domestic and pedigree cats as well as the amazingly patterned tabbies.
