With Painting Romantic Landscapes, anyone can learn how to paint lovely, rural landscapes. Six step-by-step projects, ranging from beginner to advanced, guide artists through the author's special acrylic painting techniques that easily capture the natural beauty of landscapes.
Sharon Buononato shows readers how to render the basics of landscape painting, including skies, trees, garden flowers, streams, small waterfalls, reflections on still water and more. She also provides guidelines for portraying the rustic charm of mills, barns, farmhouses and a garden gate.
Each project captures the look and feel of a different season -- from fall foliage and snow-covered trees to a sunny summer garden. Detailed drawings and traceable patterns make each scene easy to create.
