Paint landscapes in a whole new light!

Nothing enhances a landscape like the play of light. Now you can capture its rich, illusive properties in your own paintings. It's easy and fun when you paint along with Dorothy Dent.

In 10 step-by-step projects, suitable for both beginners and more accomplished painters, Dorothy shares her easy-to-master techniques for painting light-filled landscapes in different seasons, weather conditions and times of day. As she explains, it's all in learning to see and work with lighting and color value.

And what wonderful landscapes you'll paint—peaceful scenes of wide-open spaces, rolling farmlands, landscaped gardens and mountain valleys. Learn how to capture:

  • Spectacular sunsets and sunrises
  • Dramatic light and shadow on snow
  • Sun-speckled garden pathways
  • Autumn's gold-lit foliage
  • The sun-touched haze of a summer shower
  • Sunshine and moonshine on water
  • And much more

Dorothy's projects include oil and acrylic painting demos, with advice for adapting the technique used for one medium to that of the other. With each project, diagrams showing light direction and color tonal values get you off to a good start. Then each project concludes with a "Take a Closer Look" commentary—demonstrating how experts like Dorothy fine tune their paintings with those just-what-it-needs finishing touches.

Prepare to be amazed by the landscapes you create! Painting Landscapes Filled with Light is your guide to new possibilities in your painting.
