10 step-by-step demonstrations tackle a diversity of lighting situations, encompassing various weather conditions and times of day.

Five contributing artists explore different styles, approaches and subjects, including landscapes, water scenes and people.

Concepts are demonstrated with pastel but are applicable to any medium.

An illuminating read for beginning and experienced artists alike, this book will help you engage your viewer by achieving that captivating sense of being there.
