Birds of the West: An Artist’s Guide by Molly Hashimoto

Birds of the West: An Artist’s Guide, by Molly Hashimoto, Mountaineers Books/Skipstone, hardcover, 2019, 176 pages, $22.95.

Seattle-based artist Molly Hashimoto leads plein air watercolor painting and printmaking workshops at western art institutes, and her work has been featured in galleries around the country. In this, her latest book, she showcases more than 120 paintings of nearly 100 bird species of the West using different media — from quick sketches with pen and ink to carefully planned and vivid block prints. Sprinkled throughout the book are notes about her techniques on certain paintings, such as a detailed study of a Golden Eagle’s head and a rendition of a Great Blue Heron’s movements.
