Bird artist Natalia Balo gives helpful insight and useful advice on drawing and painting birds.  Natalia Balo is a multi-award winning figurative Australian Artist specialising in portraiture and wildlife painting, and professional Art teacher with over 20 years of teaching experience, with formal accreditation in Teaching Painting and Drawing (BFA - Art Education, with Distinction), MFA (Book Illustration), PhD (Natural History Illustration). Her fine art education in Ukraine (1976-1991), based on the historically famous curriculum of Classical Realism, provided her with the unparalleled skill in academic drawing, which today is a fundamental challenge for many artists. In Australia, Natalia had achieved her Doctoral degree completing an innovative research on Drawing Birds and Bird Anatomy for Artists, to which she dedicated six years (1999-2005). This research became the basis of Natalia's recently published book Bird Anatomy for Artists, which is now a university textbook, and is very popular among the bird watches, artists and bird lovers. The book opens with a foreword by famous Australian ornithologist Dr. Penny Olsen. 

Review of the book by Dr.Trevor Weekes, University of Newcastle: 

For many years bird artists have been searching for an informative textbook on Bird Anatomy. Until now there have been very few books focusing on Bird Anatomy and drawing birds available, but now the search is over. Bird Anatomy for Artists has arrived! Bird Anatomy for Artists is a beautifully presented comprehensive survey of the complete bird from head to tail. The book is full of masterly illustrations that are clear and easy to understand, including black and white working drawings, examples of the artist's field studies and exquisite colour illustrations. Every part of the bird's body is outlined in detail with informative text and helpful drawing instructions. Bird Anatomy for Artists is perhaps the most complete textbook available on this subject. I highly recommend this reference book not only for Artists, but for anyone interested in Birds.
