An understanding of the various natural forms is vital to successful landscape art. Abigail Edgar's expert tutorials provide this knowledge, from which readers can go on to work through the step-by-step projects. The stages of each artwork are fully explained, so that students can follow along and learn the essential methods artists use to observe and capture a vista on paper or canvas. The tutorials and 31 projects are complemented by galleries of professional art with commentaries by expert art writer Sarah Hoggett. After working through the tutorials, projects and galleries and making use of the information about materials, amateur artists will be able to produce their own studies of natural and man made landscapes.
