Incorporating both drawing and watercolour media, the author starts by leading readers through a series of examples and exercises that will introduce them to the equipment and techniques needed for landscapes. The author then examines a series of landscape-based themes in detail, showing the problems that can be encountered, and offering ingenious solutions. Each theme starts by demonstrating the basic marks and brushstrokes required for that subject, then sets out a series of problem-and-solution pages that are packed with useful tips on how to paint those subjects and avoid the common pitfalls. Each of these themes concludes with a step-by-step demonstration in a chosen medium to pull all the points covered in the theme together in practice.
