Learn how to celebrate the genre of landscape painting with this practical guide, perfect for both novices and art graduates

Capturing the landscape on paper requires the artist to look—to look deep into the distance and deep into the soul. This practical book celebrates the genre of landscape painting—the wonder of discovering the extraordinary in the everyday scene. Philip Tyler looks in detail at the materials, techniques, and approaches needed to paint the landscape, and offers advice on how to portray space, light, atmosphere, and different weather conditions. Supported by the words and images of other notable artists, he explains how to transfer one's emotional response to the landscape onto paper or canvas. There are exercises to support the 50 lessons in the book and more than 300 color images illustrate the text.
