Painting ocean and wilderness landscapes requires a special touch. Without systematic instruction, developing that touch can be an arduous and sometimes a futile task. Jude Siegel's copiously illustrated step-by-step guide introduces budding artists to useful techniques for painting natural settings. Siegel's informal instructions are reinforced by the beauty and unforced craft of her own stunning Pacific Northwest watercolors.
