The overwhelming success of artists like Thomas Kinkade has demonstrated the public's demand for enchanting, realistic landscape painting. This book applies decorative painting's precise instruction and stroke work to this popular subject matter so decorative painters and traditional artists alike can create their own charming, outdoor scenes.
Beloved decorative artist Dorothy Dent shares her trademark landscape painting techniques in 10 step-by-step acrylic projects. A range of scenes feature favorite subjects, including old covered bridges, rustic farmhouses, meandering brooks, wooded pathways, snow-covered hills and autumn country roads.
Because Dorothy feels light is the key to realistic landscape painting, she takes special care to fully demonstrate how to capture the warmth and radiance of natural light in every project. She also paints on a variety of surfaces, including stretched canvas, masonite panels, plaques, trays, watering cans and more.
