The Complete Guide to Painting Landscapes
By Richard Taylor (Author)
Richard Taylor looks at each element of the landscape in turn. He moves from small details, such as a quick painting of his backpack, drawn in a break from walking, to wide, sweeping panoramas. Detailed annotation points out key areas of interest for each painting, showing, for example, how a wash has been used to create shadows in still water, or how paper has been left blank to represent the tops of clouds. Alongside each painting you'll find the palette of colors used, with advice on combining colors for best effect. Step-by-step demonstrations show basic watercolor techniques in action and longer projects reveal how Richard develops a fully realized painting. Packed with invaluable hints and tips and illustrated with the author's inspiring watercolors, this book is perfect for the beginner or more experienced watercolor painter.
