One of the most popular subjects for artists, landscapes are a constant source of inspiration, making us want to convey their beauty, atmosphere and meanings.
This practical book offers budding artists the chance to learn from experienced art tutors, and master the skills needed to draw and paint the world around them. An understanding of the various natural forms is key to successful landscape art.
