Overview

The whole world is stretching out before you, beautiful to see--so sketch it! With an artist's help, you can gain the skills needed to capture the colors and tones of a vibrant landscape. Starting with ideas for keeping a sketchbook and choosing materials, John Marsh systematically teaches you ways to observe and techniques to master when portraying nature in all its variations: clouds, mountains and hills, water, rocks and cliffs, trees and fields, and more. As your ability grows, you can take on more difficult perspectives and incorporate both buildings and figures. Try putting down on paper cottages and villages, ancient buildings, and even the industrial landscape, paying close attention to the changes of the seasons, the light, and the atmosphere. Throughout, dozens of beautiful sketches illustrate the important points.
