These original studies of animal ornaments drawn from the world-famous Book of Kells by Aidan Meehan will inspire you to try out your own painting techniques and colour schemes. Works of art in themselves, the large-scale drawings are developed from motifs from the four main categories of animal patterns used throughout the Book of Kells - cats, birds, eels and little people - which are often difficult to make out or incomplete in the original. Where the original detail is too miniaturized to allow for contour lines inside the animals' bodies, the author has applied the conventions of large-scale treatments true to other designs in the Book of Kells. On each page the folio number of the Book of Kells from which the design has been derived is given so you can relate it to the original manuscript and its colour schemes. Each design is easy to paint and frame, making this the ideal gift for artists, designers and anyone fascinated by the Celtic legacy.
