As an intermediate artist, if you are looking to hone or sharpen your skills, look no further. Here is your perfect comprehensive guide! You will begin with a list of what's needed to get started and begin your painting. And move into an in depth look of multiple different types of landscape; sky, terrain,trees, and water. And then you be shown how to put it all together. The information and guides are written in a manner which is easy to understand, and almost every page includes a beautiful painting by various artists. Learn to think like a painter, and how to set your paintings apart from others. Invoke a mood, capture the perfect light and make your paintings come to life! I thought this book was really great for an intermediate painter. I am still a beginner, and so was able to glean a lot of useful information, although I'm not able to execute some of her form quite yet. But this will be a great book to move me onto the next skill level. The guides and information are written very simply and easy to understand, while still holding the experience of the author. I loved all the paintings, seeing the moods they invoked, and the realistic qualities of some. Great book for an intermediate or a beginner like me aspiring to move to the next level. I received this book from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.
