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.
