Art of Drawing Landscapes
Book Description Following the successful Art of Drawing and Art of Drawing the Human Body, the third book in this superb series examines the highly popular subject of landscape art. Richly illustrated, usually with several drawings on each page, as well as close-up photographs, it outlines the various forms, techniques, and considerations that go into producing a successful picture. The lessons begin with the most basic lines, strokes, and spots, and exercises include studies of plants, leaves, rocks, and other natural forms. There are solutions to the problems of representing the sky and capturing gradations of light. Plus: how to select the subject, block the landscape, accurately represent the height and position of the horizon, create points of visual attraction, and much more.
