Check Out This Exclusive Excerpt from Creating Textured Landscapes with Pen, Ink and Watercolor:

Texture - Texture is the surface quality that allows us to tell an orange ball from an orange. Although actual texture can be created using texturing mediums, most artists give the illusion of texture by using link patterns and a variety of application tools. Texturing adds the finishing touch of reality to a landscape, but must be handled with thought and skill to preserve the credibility of the painting.
In this chapter, we will take a closer look at all the compositional elements listed above, for no one component can stand alone in the creation of a successful landscape. However, the main focus will be on the basic texturing techniques and the tools used to create them. Don't be afraid to try them out before moving on. They say practice makes perfect, but I experiment with textures just because it's fun!

Excellent and Clear Review by J Thomas

This very well written book describes the techniques used to create the artwork featured in the book. The techniques are all easily learned, yet clearly take effort to adapt to your own work, as they should. This is a very welcome addition to my collection of instructional books.

great Review by Alice

I bought this book for my sister who does pen and ink/watercolor and Ms. Nice is her favourite author/artist. Of course, I looked thru the book myself, it's very well done, interesting and lots of helpful hints and advice.
