Overview

Priscilla Hauser has earned her title as the world’s “First Lady of decorative painting.” Her efforts to educate and inspire began in 1972 with the founding of the National Society of Tole and Decorative Painters and continues strong today. Here, the bestselling author applies her decades of experience to show crafters how to make a big impact on a small canvas. She starts with painting basics, including proper techniques for brushstrokes, and continues with her patented, easy-to-follow techniques for capturing grass, land, water, and trees. Through 15 of her own gorgeous works, Hauser shows readers how to combine all of those elements to create beautiful landscapes. Exquisite color photographs guide aspiring painters through every step of the process.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal

Artist and decorative painting teacher Hauser (Patricia Hauser's Book of Roses) offers techniques and examples of small-scale (less than 5" × 7") landscape paintings in acrylics, oils, or watercolors, which the artist completes wearing a headband magnifier. Practice exercises cover skies, buildings, and other landscape elements; the projects themselves include paintings done in four stages. Fans of Hauser's previous books will enjoy this one as well. For public libraries.
