In his latest volume, David returns to one of the subjects for which he’s best known and he concentrates on the how rather than just the what and the why of a subject that can be difficult to pin down.
Using plenty of examples, as well as short demonstrations, David explains simple and complex skies, clouds and sunlight. He also shows you how to use layered glazes to increase light effects, how to handle light that comes from more than one direction and how to give real depth to shadows.
In the section on atmosphere, he demonstrates how to make the most of mist and rain, as well as how to create the effect of space and distance.
Although he treats them separately, all of the subjects link together and you’ll soon be getting the passion and inspiration that David says are as important as composition for a successful painting. Generously illustrated and superbly reproduced, this is one of David’s most instructive books.
