This book covers two of the most important and potentially tricky areas of landscape painting.
Starting from basics, Liz will show you how to handle the transition between sky and foreground as well as how to use the sky to set the mood for your painting. She then goes on to look at shapes and tonal values before beginning with underpainting and then working up to a finished result. She also explains clearly the all-important topics of aerial perspective, clouds and reflections.
This is a well-structured course that explains everything you need to know in simple terms and uses clear illustrations and demonstrations to back this up.
As well as the basics, Liz also shows you how to capture moving and still water, waves, trees, rain and snow.
This is an invaluable guide that should please anyone who wants to paint landscapes in the rewarding medium of pastel.
