Underpinning all good landscape painting is observation. Starting from this standpoint, this book introduces the artist to painting the natural and man-made landscape. Initially equipped with just a handful of pencils and paper to explore the world outside, it allows confidence to grow alongside an understanding of the art and craft of painting landscape. Written by artist Richard Pikesley, it demonstrates his approach and that of other contributors, who illustrate the diversity of paths that can be taken to achieve a passionate and personal response to the landscape. Richly illustrated with more than 300 color images, this book emphasizes the importance of observation, and advises on how to "learn" the landscape; it teaches the rudiments of drawing, and develops confidence and technical understanding of the subject; it explains color mixing on the palette, and how color works in nature and is affected by sunlight. Also included is a guide to the materials, equipment, and techniques of the landscape painter. Finally, there is advice on presenting, framing, and displaying your work, and how to find exhibition opportunities.
