Ireland offers a rich source of subject matter for the landscape painter, and popular TV artist Dermot Cavanagh explores them all thoroughly.
There are five, fully-detailed demonstrations, each with its own pre-drawn tracing that allows you to get the outline of the image down quickly & reliably. This method of working has proved invaluable for beginners & even more experienced artists, who find that their drawing skills sometimes let them down.
Dermot takes full advantage of, as well as doing justice to the range of rich colours Ireland offers. He is also adept at using shading & hues to convey recession in hills as well as to give body & shape to trees & shrubs. He also includes a good variety of buildings, both formal & traditional.
The advice given does not apply only to Ireland and this simple & straightforward guide provides an excellent introduction to landscape painting. The skills & techniques you will learn here can be applied to many other subjects.
