Even beginners can start painting landscapes instantly with the help of Hazel Soan’s basic exercises and simple step-by-step demonstrations.

Learn techniques for capturing various sources of light, shadows, and seasons, as well as for choosing and mixing watercolors, both transparent and opaque. Move on to advice on painting en plein air, brushwork, wet on dry, wet into wet, laying a wash, and developing texture. The specific themes addressed range from skies, foliage, forests, fields, grasses, gardens, rivers and lakes to mountains, seascapes, wilderness, desert, urban vistas, panoramas, and sunsets.
