Trument Brooker provides you with step by step lessons that help you improve your rendering skills and re create the beauty of the world outdoors Examples from art history and contemporary masters supplement these lessons The end result is a drawing instruction book that provides artists with everything they need to render landscapes no matter their skill leve. I liked this book very much She starts out by running through a lot of the basics of drawing She was great at explaining how to convey distance by using atmosphere Many great examples And I also liked how she showed how using different marks to kind of shorthand leaves Landscape drawing involves a lot of leaving out the details so to speak and using groups of marks to convey an overall picture I liked how she explained her methods of breaking down the subject matter Not enough books out there that explain how to do that with outdoor subject matter It's a great book for the beginner and a accomplished artist Something for everybody that would be interested in getting better at drawing
