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.

THE SKY sets the mood in a painting, and the author,Liz Haywood-Sullivan fully explains the importance of the sky in the landscape. She uses photos of her beautiful pastels with clear descriptive wording. Photos show the wrong way and the right way to do cloud formations. Liz shows how to apply clouds to the sky in step by step instructions; tells you what blues are best to use, how to paint the changing light and changeable sky,the drama of sunrise and sunset skies, and moonlit skies.
WATER is often in landscape paintings and if you wish to learn how to do water well in a landscape painting, then this book will explain and show you how to do it well. Again, there are photos showing the wrong way and the right way of painting believable reflections in the water and aerial perspective. Find out how to paint water from still water, moving water,falling water, the ocean, as well as painting fog, painting rain,transparency in water. Gorgeous photos of her work in the book telling also what type of pastel papers or boards were used and pastels.
Don't miss out on this book and what you can learn from the author.
For instance, she shows us photos of various clouds, along with a rough pen sketch and lengthy description of how to render each, BUT NO PASTEL VERSION, so we are not able to "see" what she is explaining. Then, when she gets to a section where she finally shows us pastel renderings of different types of clouds, she shows us no photographs of those scenes.
There are a few demonstrations that include a photo of the original scene, so all is not hopeless. But that is an exception--we do not often get a chance to see a photo and a pastel rendering of same.
In the Kindle version, the layout is so poor that often her descriptions are on a different page than the actual rendering, so that the reader is forced to go back and forth between pages in order to understand what she is trying to explain.
I hope I don't sound as if I am nitpicking. This is an important book in my library, but not without it's flaws.
Liz- please give us a revision, at least of the kindle version!
