Whether it's a landscape, seascape, or city scene, David Curtis's paintings capture the beauty of natural light. In a unique instructional guide for professional and amateur alike, he divulges all his secrets: selecting the subject and finding the best way to dramatize form; establishing a mood through medium and technique; and using a color palette that best achieves the desired impact. With these elements in mind, he takes the reader through the creation of several paintings (and includes stunning images of the works in progress and finished pieces), explaining the key choices made along the way.
