Painting Brilliant Skies & Water in Pastel

Secrets to Bringing Light and Life to Your Landscapes

By Liz Haywood-Sullivan

Format: Paperback

SKU# V6637

Details

Popular artist and teacher Liz Haywood-Sullivan shares her secrets for painting landscapes in pastels with colorful, light-filled skies and sparkling, realistic water.

• In-depth instruction on painting two of the most challenging elements in the landscape
• Start-to-finish demonstrations on painting skies in all types of weather, from morning to night, and water in all its forms, from calm reflective ponds and meandering rivers to whitewater cascades and ocean waves
• A simple, clear approach to potentially puzzling concepts such as aerial perspective, angles of light and identification of cloud types.

Two of the most difficult elements for artists to control in a landscape painting are sky and water. This book presents an in-depth look at these two specific trouble spots for landscape artists who have not found the help they need. Step-by-step demonstrations and diagrams bring clarity to the nature of water--how it reflects light and how it moves. Students will learn the types of clouds and weather conditions, and how those create mood. Later chapters show how to place both the sky and water correctly in a landscape.
