How to Paint Skies

Description

Skies are an important part of landscape paintings, setting the tone of the scene as a whole and often representing the dominant feature of the composition. In this revised and updated edition of Painting Skies which includes material from Geoff's Top Tops for Watercolour Artists, Geoff Kersey imparts his knowledge and expertise to artists of all abilities, demonstrating how to paint skies that give a sense of cohesion, place and atmosphere to your landscape paintings.

Painting skies is also the best way to learn how watercolour behaves, and there is a large section at the start of the book that explains the techniques you need to produce a broad range of effects. Including a stormy sky, a summer sky, an evening glow, a sunset and low cloud. This comprehensive guide also includes information on the materials you need, drawing and sketching, using photographs, composition, colour and perspective, and throughout the book are examples of Geoff's finished artworks to provide inspiration and ideas for compositions of your own. The book finishes with six glorious, step-by-step projects to put into practice all you have learnt and give you the confidence to incorporate stunning skies into your own watercolour landscape paintings.
