Demonstrating the roles that memory and imagination can play in harnessing our creative potential, Kaaren Poole’s step-by-step instructions show how with a little time anyone can paint beautiful landscapes. Begin with an overview of basic color theory, and move on to learn how to represent individual landscape elements, from water and snow to shrubs and brambles. From drawing in perspective and brush technique to choosing and mixing paints, the eight delightful practice projects pull all of the lessons together. Try out the “Love of Lavender” composition with its marching rows of lavender on gently rolling hills, or the “Autumn Jewel,” complete with a nostalgic covered bridge.
