Ebook Description

Make your landscape paintings more adventurous with these mixed-media techniques! Popular artist and teacher Soraya French encourages her students to broaden their horizons, and here she gives painters the tools they need to experiment with exciting combinations of acrylics, pastels, and collage. The book is divided into the four seasons, and the particular colors, shapes, patterns, and textures associated with each one; it also explores interesting ways of painting flowers and other details of nature. French explains how to create lively compositions, depict architectural features within the landscape, and even, in some instances, create a narrative. Handy tips, simple projects, and step-by-step demonstrations help artists hone their skills.
