Landscapes are one of the artist's favourite subject matters and have provided inspiration to countless artists around the world, beginners and great masters alike. Landscapes differ enormously not only from country to country but from region to region, providing an almost limitless source of subject matter for artists of all levels - right at their doorstep. In this book, Ian Sidaway presents a series of ten progressive demonstrations in order to master the basics of drawing landscapes. The demonstrations feature a variety of landscapes - from lush fields and rocky mountains to gushing waterfalls and winter landscapes. After learning about the tools and materials needed, the basic techniques are explored, including style and visual vocabulary, line quality, tone, colour and mixing media. Any beginner who has previously been daunted by the thought of drawing landscapes will be able to work through the demonstrations, taking on board all the invaluable hints and tips from the author, and will be delighted at the results that they achieve.
