This is a new edition of what has become a favourite book. We all learn from tips and techniques and seeing how other painters paint, and this book is perfect for that. 22 detailed step by step demonstrations are included in the book as well as numerous inspiring finished paintings. Great professional advice is given by each artist. The book covers a wide variety of landscaping subjects such as flowers, water, seaside, fields, streams, winter scenes and more. In addition, there is plenty in the way of tips and techniques to learn how to capture light and atmosphere, water, cloud and shadows and so on. A lovely book if you don't have the original edition.* Karen Platt Yarnsandfabrics.co.uk/crafts *
