I recently I ordered and received two of Floyd Scholz books :" Birds of Prey" and "Golden Eagle" ( the art of Bird carving) a must to read, I did not put them down until I read from cover to cover with both books, then suddenly had the horrible thought that I still have a long way to achieve my dreams to-become a master at my art. What was in these books was so inspiring, it has just given me a very positive goal to achieve more and more.
His detail in the lay out is fantastic from his subjects action to the burning of feathers detailing and painting, just awesome, he can also be found on Google and you-tube, if you wish to carve birds, they are a must to read or add to your collection, as the principal is the same for a large bird or a small song bird. His full size Golden Eagle took ten months to finish, so my project of the two mallards may take six months may not be so bad after all.
