Nothing enhances a landscape like the play of light. Now you can capture its rich, illusive properties in your own paintings. It's easy and fun when you paint along with Dorothy Dent.

In 10 step-by-step projects, suitable for both beginners and more accomplished painters, Dorothy shares her easy-to-master techniques for painting light-filled landscapes in different seasons, weather conditions and times of day. As she explains, it's all in learning to see and work with lighting and color value.

And what wonderful landscapes you'll paint - peaceful scenes of wide-open spaces, rolling farmlands, landscaped gardens and mountain valleys. Learn how to capture: Spectacular sunsets and sunrisesDramatic light and shadow on snowSun-speckled garden pathwaysAutumn's gold-lit foliageThe sun-touched haze of a summer showerSunshine and moonshine on waterAnd much moreDorothy's projects include oil and acrylic painting demos, with advice for adapting the technique used for one medium to that of the other. With each project, diagrams showing light direction and color tonal values get you off to a good start.
